Education in Georgia

  • Georgia joined GPE in 2007.
  • At that time, partners endorsed Georgia’s Consolidated Education Strategy and Action Plan, covering the period 2007-2011.
  • Georgia has not received GPE grants, but GPE worked with the government to support the process of developing and implementing its education strategy.
  • The GPE approach also encouraged collaboration in the education sector in Georgia: partners from civil society organizations and development agencies were invited by the ministry of Education to form an inter-agency group assisting the ministry in the development of the strategy.
  • GPE has also provided the Georgian Coalition for Education for All (GCEFA) with a grant from the Civil Society Education Fund, to support its engagement in education sector policy dialogue and citizens’ voice in education quality, equity, and financing and sector reform.
