On Saturday, June 4, In Vake Park, UN Association of Georgia in partnership with the Ministry of Justice of Georgia and the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia, hosted a community fundraiser for My Senior Friend program.
Fundraiser also intended to celebrate the International Children’s Day and remind the public about the children’s rights, one more time. The event centered around the exquisite photo exhibit, specially developed for this fundraiser by a young photographer, Guram Muradov. The photo exhibit-sale, together with the sales of the handmade works that were donated by several professional colleges (Mermisi, Profesionali and Balavari), intended to raise the funds in support of the My Senior Friend, a joint project of UNAG and MoJ.

The program was developed by the Ministry of Justice of Georgia in cooperation with UN Association in Georgia and it aims to work with youth who have certain set of problems in their lives and are in need of extra positive impact.
