Iakob is one our first beneficiaries. We are very proud to say that today he’s a successful graphic designer! He taught himself how to use Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator online. He became so proficient that our Chromebook was not strong enough to support his work - we had to give him a PC instead. And this is not all! He’s also a car geek. “I find the craftsmanship that goes into repairing machinery very interesting”. Who knows, maybe he’ll become a mechanic next? We’ll support him no matter what!

Mzia lives in a very small village in Western Georgia. She’s crazy about her friends and family but finds the environment quite tedious. And you wouldn’t blame her if you heard about all of her extraordinarily diverse interests. She’s fascinated by archaeology, geography, agriculture, Georgian prose… She’s not sure about what she wants to do in life, but she wants to have maximum impact on society. She’d love to go into agriculture… or maybe journalism. Why? So that she can raise awareness on the issues of her community.
