KASPI. 26 June 2014 โ€“ More than 200 farming households in the Kaspi municipality received saplings of tomatoes, eggplants and peppers for their gardens. The assistance to the Shida Kartli villages is part of a joint initiative of the UNDP and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to support local residents in the areas adjacent to the Administrative Boundary Line.

Representatives of the United Nations and local authorities visited the villages of Karafila and Saribari today. They attended the distribution of saplings and met with local residents.

Six villages and over 1500 people, most of them displaced, benefit from the UN assistance, such as: technical support and vocational education for small farmers; arrangement of demonstration plots; rehabilitation of kindergartens and water supply systems.

With the budget of USD 400 000, the 18-month project will run till July 2015.
