On August 18 ST. Aleksy Shushanias Orthodox School-Gymnasium cleaned up and adopted the territory around Shkhepi castle in the frameworks of Keep Georgia Beautiful campaign.


Different schools of Samegrelo took part in the clean up. Such as: Senaki # 1, Abkhazia #14, Zugdidi #10, Akhalkakhati, Kheti and Khamisკura public schools. Representatives of Senaki municipality also took part in the clean up.

Keep Georgia Beautiful campaign is implemented By CENN's WMTR II program supported by USAID.

The campaign aims to reduce the amount of littered areas throughout Georgia and to raise the awareness of the public. Keep Georgia Beautiful was inspired by Keep America Beautiful, a campaign that has been implemented in the US since 1953 and aims to keep the country clean and beautiful through multi-sectoral cooperation. In Georgia, the campaign encourages private companies, entrepreneurs, the local population and other stakeholders to be environmental stewards in their communities and implement various green activities in their everyday lives.

Within the campaign, any interested organization can become a devoted ambassador of the environment. Those willing to participate in the campaign can adopt any specific area, for whose cleanliness and further care they will take responsibility of. After an area has been identified, its initial clean-up will take place and an informational banner will be installed informing the public of the organization responsible for the cleanliness of the area. Adoption of an area by an organization means monitoring and maintaining its cleanliness and repeating clean-up activities as necessary.

Become devoted ambassadors and friends of the Campaign by sharing information about the initiative to your virtual friends using the hashtag: #KeepGeorgiaBeautiful.


Together we will reduce waste in Georgia!
