Today, VGIF would like to commend the work of a former multi-year grantee, the Women's Center in Tbilsi, Georgia. Since 2007, VGIF has supported several of their projects, all dedicated to promoting women's and young girls' rights. Their most recent project made incredible differences in the community - they reported that for the first time, college level minority women started to speak about gender-based violence, healthy lifestyles, and sexually transmitted diseases due to forums they held for university students, teenagers and youth.
