Vladimer Apkhazava, a civic teacher from Georgia


Vladimer Apkhazava is a civic teacher of a public school in the village of Chibati in Lanchkhuti Municipality (Guria, the western part of Georgia). He has been teaching at the school since 2010. In 2012, he established a “family House” in the village giving a home to 8 children (who have experienced domestic violence). The region is poor and the parents of many students have had to move to foreign countries for work. Moreover, many students had to leave school and move to Turkey in search of jobs.

One of his most interesting projects intended to spread tolerance and multiculturalism as the village unites different ethnic groups. What’s more, Vladimer pays particular attention to children’s rights and tries to work with various social services against children’s absence from school due to economic pressure.

The Georgian teacher won the Georgian National Teacher Prize 2017. This year he has been among 10 international teachers fighting to become the winner of the Global Teacher Prize 2019.
