Dedaena in Georgian means mother tongue. The Dedaena society was established in Georgia to protect and promote the Georgian language. In the era of globalization it is very important to support the development of languages spoken only by a few million people. The unique history and literature which are created in Georgian must be preserved for future centuries. Scholars, linguists, philologists and others should unite to preserve the Georgian language. Professors Zaza Gachechiladze, MP Tamaz Kvachantiradze and the president of the rugby union of Georgia Gia Nizharadze are the founders of the Dedaena Society. Zaza Gachechiladze told The Messenger: rugby is the sport which actually materalises Georgia’s potential for unification, collective gain and victory. It is symbolic that in our strive to preserve the mother tongue all Georgian society should be together.
