Community Challenge: Supporting Young Adults in Javakheti, Georgia
This isolated and undiscovered region in south-west Georgia is where we have the opportunity to host RacingThePlanet: Georgia 2021. The region is agriculturally rich with traditional methods used to farm the land and maintain livestock. It is one of the most culturally diverse regions of Georgia, which is home to many small villages of not only Georgian ancestry and traditions but also Greek, Russian, Armenian and Doukhobor ancestry and traditions. We are working with the Georgian EcoTourism Association to empower children and young adults in the different villages along the course through sports and education. We look forward to welcoming some of the young adults to join us on different sections of RacingThePlanet: Georgia 2021.
