Join us for AFG's 'Journey to Georgia' Trip 2013

Dear Friends,

Please join us for our annual ‘Journey to Georgia’ trip!

Travel with AFG's American and Georgian directors to see the fascinating country of Georgia--the jewel in the crown--through the eyes of American Friends of Georgia.  See firsthand the positive progress of AFG’s Project Leaders and visit many of the beautiful sights in Georgia while experiencing their rich cultural heritage.

Sip wine made by the monks of Alaverdi Monastery, meet Mother Mariam at her Mercy Center Hospice, experience a performance by the war affected children at Nikozi Education and Cultural Center, enjoy a Georgian table at the 18th century estate of Prince Alexander Chavchavadze, meet with a local archeologist to view the remains of four 1.7 million-year-old H. erectus skulls in Dmanisi, and much more.

After last year’s trip, Dr.(s) Susan Graham and Jon Kucera wrote: “What a great time the Georgia expedition was! It was a pleasure to get to know you and a privilege to learn about the history, culture, challenges and accomplishments of the people of Georgia. I can honestly say that every one of the organizations that we visited supported by American Friends of Georgia left me with the same feeling of admiration and inspiration. Each one was run by committed individuals who through the strength of purpose and incredible effort had created a solid program that was doing good things on a shoestring. It was clear that not a penny was wasted, and that the support of American Friends of Georgia was greatly appreciated.”
