  • Descripción


    Our community is a vibrant community for adults with mental disabilities in Sighnaghi municipality, Georgia. It is located 4-5 km away from the city Sighnaghi. It is a therapeutic residence that nurtures, supports, and celebrates the uniqueness of every individual. The community was founded 20 years ago and its final goal is to overcome the stigmatization of people with disabilities in Georgia. We pursue this goal mainly on a grass roots and regional level. We believe that providing a real, tangible example an integrated environment is of utmost importance in today’s Georgia. We have 16 staff members. 5 of them work in administration and technical support. The rest are caretakers for residents.

    Our community consists of:
    The household area, where 28 residents live in Three houses.
    Social cafe, where we welcome guests, bake pastry and sell our handmade souvenirs.

    We have following workshops:
    WOOD SHOP − we make toys, chairs and tables for sale
    WEAVING AND HANDICRAFTS − we do felting, weave natural cotton fabric on our own looms, make beads, earrings and other souvenirs.
    FRUIT DRYING WORKSHOP − we make dried fruits and fruit leather from our own harvest for sale in the town. We plan on adding dried medicinal herbs and herbal teas.
    GARDEN AND GREENHOUSE − we raise vegetables for our own use.
    FARM -we have pigs and chickens

    We are also active in art. We have a music ensemble, we do paining, theatrical performances with local youth, celebrations of holidays, excursions, joint photography exhibitions, etc.
