Within the framework of the ENPARD Communication Unit Phase, an inspirational photo story of Tamar Arabuli was produced to showcase her resourcefulness and determination to transform traditional hospitality into a family business. Tamar and the Arabuli family started offering accommodation to local and foreign travellers over 12 years ago in their own home and today, with the support of the ENPARD project and EU co-financing, they are the proud owners of a small mountain resort located 2,200 meters above sea level in the village of Juta, operating throughout the year.
Following the successful implementation of the first phase of project in 2013, Action Global continues to deliver exceptional communication services to ENPARD. To date the communications strategy and formulation of relevant activities developed by Action, helped disseminate relevant information that in turn helped triple female participation from 308 cooperative members to 938 within two years; 250,000 received advice on farming; 2,000 farmers benefited from funding, and 8,000 farmers received training in agriculture. Through information and consultation and EU-funded training, the cooperatives increased their income by 30% in the period of 3 years and employment increased by 100%. Action Global is proud of its team in Georgia whose work has a positive impact on the community.
