Tolerance and Diversity Institute Implements a New Project “Images of Diversity: Promoting Tolerance and Non-Discrimination in Georgia”

19 March 2020 Nina Alimbarashvili, TDI Video Protagonist

USAID/PROLoG actively works to raise public awareness, and with its support, Tolerance and Diversity Institute (TDI) started implementing a new project, “Images of Diversity: Promoting Tolerance and Non-Discrimination in Georgia,” to raise public awareness about discrimination problems faced by religious and ethnic minorities and foreign nationals in Georgia, and to empower representatives of minority groups.

TDI was actively working to raise public awareness on discrimination issues under another project, “Promoting Diversity Enhancing Dialogue and Empowering Minorities and Women“ supported by USAID/PROLoG and developed videos and photo stories of individuals representing minority communities, educational articles on the topics of religious and ethnic discrimination in Georgia, and other multimedia products demonstrating individual stories about challenges that ethnic, religious and racial minorities encounter in their everyday lives. Throughout the project, TDI produced 36 multimedia materials, including 12 documentary videos, five graphic videos, 13 photo-stories, and six articles about people of different religious, national and ethnic identities studying or working in Georgia.

TDI also developed an online social media platform – “Images of Diversity.” The platform highlights the systemic problems, including discrimination and isolation, that representatives of religious and ethnic communities experience in Georgia. The platform has become increasingly popular, and received a total of 10,231 likes. The content of the platform is shared by media professionals, civil activists, students, politicians and citizens.

On March 19, under the USAID/PROLoG-funded new project, TDI prepared a video featuring Nina Alimbarashvili, a Jewish girl who studied Hebrew at the university. The video focuses on how she discovered her identity and the environment and attitudes towards Jews in Georgia, and will be supplemented throughout the project with other materials on relevant topics.
