Taso Foundation implements the component of social mobilization in the frames of the project Women for Equality, Peace and Development in Georgia (WEPD). Social mobilization implies empowerment and support of local communities for their effective cooperation with local government representatives in order to solve the social problems of the respective communities.

As a result the action plans of integration of gender issues in the local budgets will be created. Meetings are held in municipalities of Tetritskaro; Gori; Zugdidi and Samtredia.
