Help Improve Education and Economic Opportunity in Georgia
This project is fully funded. Thank you!
With the help of our donors, Spirit of America purchased $5,157 worth of walnut tree saplings and the labor needed to plant a new grove on the grounds of a local school. The grove will be a persistent reminder to the community of American friendship as well as a future economic and educational resource.

In January 2008, after years of participation in NATO military operations in Afghanistan, Georgia held a national referendum on NATO membership that resulted in an overwhelming majority voting in favor of joining the alliance. Later that same year, Russian troops invaded the country in support of the separatist Georgian regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Though not yet a member of NATO today, largely due to the ongoing Russian occupation of these regions, Georgia continues to work towards better integration with the West.
