Mikheil Kechaqmadze

I am a 24-year-old young guy motivated to help my country to become civil and democratic. I am a volunteer manager at the Youth Resource Center of Guria, which was established through the cooperation of the Peace Corps of America in April 2002. It is a non-profit, non-governmental organization with a mission of facilitating the process of civic society development in Georgia. Among our objectives are: Raise civic awareness amongst the population of Georgia; protect the rights of the children and youth; support establishment of democratic institutions in Georgia, etc. The Center pays much attention to promoting volunteerism in Georgia. Our volunteers' developed network enables us to work on solving many problems our country is facing now. We closely cooperate with local non-governmental organizations and with international organizations as well.

I have 5 years experience of being both volunteer and volunteer manager. I am proud to say that as far as I know I am the only certified volunteer manager in the whole country. Now we are working on establishing the Regional Network of Volunteer Organizations of the Black Sea States. Any organization is welcomed to join us. Let's make the World a better place to live...
