Support to civil society – MATRA and Accountability Fund
Our Embassy has been supporting Georgian civil society through MATRA (“Social Transformation”) program since 2004. In over a decade, MATRA has been changing its priorities and criteria. As of 2017, our focus is on democratization in general, and on the following topics in particular: Association Agreement between Georgia and the EU, free and fair elections, and the rule of law. We promote our policies in these areas by working with Georgian NGO’s who offer us innovative, unusual ideas.
We regularly post information about our MATRA projects on the Embassy Facebook. For more information though, please call: 995 32 2276200 or send us an email.
We use this instrument to help Georgian NGO’s in lobbying and advocating their innovative ideas. Our target group here is women’s rights organisations as well as those NGO’s that work for marginalized groups.
You can find updates about Accountability Fund initiatives in Georgia on the Embassy’s Facebook or by calling or emailing the Embassy.
