About Us

Why? Who?

The web portal www.csogeorgia.org was created to exchange information, improve communication, and share  the resources among civil society organizations (CSOs). This virtual  space will enable the representatives of public, international  organizations, and any interested persons to obtain information on CSOs  and their activities, i.e. to get familiar with out work, by spending  the minimum time and energy.

The portal www.csogeorgia.org was created through the partnership of Civil Society Institute and "Open Society - Georgia" Foundation, as well as with the support of Brot fur die Welt Fund and the European Union (EU). The materials available on the portal may not express the views of initiators and partners of the web page. We look forward to hearing from you - write to us.

Search organization

Database of CSOs operating in Georgia – this is the first effort of setting up the integrated database on organizations operating in Georgia. There is a drastic difference between the number of registered and functioning organizations, but identifying the exact difference is still difficult. At this point the portal hosts information on hundreds of organizations operating all over Georgia. It is equally difficult to say whether the database fully reflects the existing picture. We obtained the information on organizations from thousands of web sites (after obtaining the contact details the data were verified with the representatives of organizations) and it may be possible that we missed some of organizations. Forgive us and let us know about you, let's draw the map of Georgian CSOs together.
