Tolerance and Diversity Institute (TDI) - Supporting Foreign Nationals at the time of the COVID-19 Pandemic

Period/Duration:  04.25.2020 - 06.24.2020

Amount: $2,851

Project description: The project aims to support foreign nationals, particularly students at the time of the COVID-19 pandemic and the declared state of emergency in Georgia. Many do not speak Georgian and are unable to gather accurate information regarding limitations imposed by the state of emergency, as well as all of the other aspects of dealing with the novel situation. Discrimination and stigma further hinder their access to quality information. While major government run web-pages have sections in English, these are not adequate to help foreign nationals navigate the ever-changing situation and regulations. TDI will address these needs through disseminating well-researched and sourced information in English via its web and Facebook pages, as well as a special Facebook group where beneficiaries can openly discuss their problems and seek information and help. Issues regarding visas and residence permits, various forms of discrimination and violations of their rights will be among the issues addressed.

The project is financed through the COVID-19 Rapid Response Grants Program.
