Education

Education is foundational to human development and is critically linked to broad-based economic growth, health outcomes, and democratic governance.

Over the past 22 years, U.S. government assistance has helped rebuild and reform the educational system in Georgia. USAID’s programs help train teachers, and improve the management of public educational systems.  USAID’s support also helps create vocational and higher educational programs that serve the needs of a growing economy. USAID continues to invest in primary education to improve children’s reading and math skills, and to ensure the inclusion of children with hearing and vision disabilities.

Current programs:
Georgia Primary Education Project (G-PriEd)
October 2011 – October 2016
Chemonics
www.chemonics.com
The goal of the G-Pried project is to provide comprehensive assistance to the primary education system to improve reading and math competencies of Georgian and ethnic minority students. This will be achieved through supporting instructional improvements, testing and improving standards, use of technology, and development of subject experts in reading and math in schools as well as in the education departments of Georgia’s universities.

Reading for Better Future Project
September 2013 – August 2016
Disabled Child, Family, Society (DCFS)

www.state.il.us/dcfs
The project Reading for Better Future aims to improve reading competency of children with hearing and visual impairments including those from ethnic minority groups by involving them in the quality reading and educational programs.  The project shifts away from the discriminatory learning practices to the rights-based approach to education for children (including ethnic minority girls) with visual and hearing impairments.
