The event took place at Bulachauri Green Centre. The training included the topics which would increase their capacity and knowledge to effectively operate in the water and sanitation field and enable them to swiftly carry out projects in a way that would meet the WASH standards that are lacking in their respective municipalities and give participants the skills to lobby their interests in their regions. More precisely, the training included the following topics:   WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) WASH and Human Rights Project Management The format of the training was interactive and correspond with the pilot projects are carried out.   Furthermore, participants had an opportunity to work together, get to know each other, and develop joint cross-cutting ideas in order to form the basis for future partnership and cooperation. Beside the academic part, the participants were actively involved in different educational and fun activities, which were focused on the improvement of teamwork and communication skills.   On 11th of January, 2019 the camp participants visited LTD. “Georgian Water and Power” (GWP), which is a leading company on the water supply market of Georgia and South Caucasus. The company provides high-quality service to the population of Tbilisi, as well as to state organizations, industrial and commercial objects. In the framework of the field trip, the camp participants were guided by the representatives of the company. Accordingly, the participants became aware of the technical operation of the company how to provide access to the clean drinking water of the population. At the end of the training, the participants were awarded with certificates to highlight their involvement in the camp, received USB flash drives that contained all the presentations and literature on every topic, multi-usable BPA free water bottles and branded hoodies designed specifically for them.   The camp was organized by CENN within the framework of the following projects: “Water for the Poor” and “Georgia Community WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) Initiative”.

With this release, we would like to address the video circulated throughout social media by one citizen on October 19, 2018. The video depicts one of the waste separation corners located next to M/S “State University” which is still under construction.   We would like to notify the public that CENN, the Waste Management Association (WMA), Tbilisi City Hall and Tbilservice Group Ltd. are cooperating together in order to open 13 new waste separation stands within the city of Tbilisi. This action will provide waste separation facilities for Tbilisi residents.   Furthermore, we would like to note that the aforementioned separation corners are not in operation yet, therefore, all stands are sealed at this point. Unfortunately, the stand located next to M/S “State University” was vandalized – the seal was removed, thus resulting in widespread public misunderstanding.   Please note that the new waste separation stands will officially be opened and ready to use in November 2018. Further information regarding the progress of this initiative will be communicated to the public and citizens will have a chance to dispose of their separated waste in the designated separation bins. Meanwhile, Tbilisi residents can use current operational waste separation corners situated in 10 different locations in Tbilisi. Separated waste is collected by a waste aggregating company and is delivered to recycling companies. Part of the waste which is not being recycled in Georgia is being exported. Each waste separation stand accommodates 4 types of waste separation bins for paper, PET plastic, glass and aluminium cans.   The recycling program in Georgia is being implemented by the USAID-supported CENN program, Waste Management Technologies in Regions (WMTR).
