Village Gamarjveba Pirveli is 10 kilometers away from Rustavi. Reaching school has been a problem for the pupils and their parents for years. Because of weather conditions pupils were forced to miss lessons. In other cases, the pupils could reach the school only for the time of second or third lessons. Today, the problem of transportation is solved for many villages.
- Our children will be able to reach school safely and on time, with the bus service is advantageous from financial point of view – noted Gulnazi Lortkipanidze, mother of three pupils.
With the initiative of the Ministry, new Project “School accessibility” was launched in January 2013. The aim of the Project is to provide with means of transport those pupils who have to walk long distances in order to reach their schools. Additionally 140 schools have joined the project from March 6. Up to 16000 pupils from 330 public schools have school buses today. The Ministry has allocated 2.6 million GEL for the implementation of the Project.
