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.

The Georgian teacher has created a project “Democratic Revolution”. The project aims to make children more engaged in the learning process and to help them fulfill their ideas. 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.
