The project was financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and was implemented by the Danish Refugee Council (DRC).
Only those Internally Displaced families could participate in the project which owned non-agricultural land in Samegrelo.
The houses for the 14 families were built on their own lands and the scales of the accommodations were specified based on the number of family members.
The project also allocated funds for rehabilitation of three infrastructural institutions in Samegrelo, which included the Akhalsopeli village school, the Jikhashkari village kindergarten and the Chkaduashi village multi-profile building.
The Georgian and foreign officials and the local population viewed a documentary at the end of the project's closing ceremony which depicted 10-year activities of SDC in Samegrelo region.
The SDC generated financial support for other parts of Georgia as well and completely rehabilitated 35 houses in western Tskaltubo region under the current state leadership, which saw 70 eco-migrant families in their own accommodations, the Ministry of Internally Displaced Persons from the Occupied Territories, Accommodation and Refugees of Georgia said.
