Davit TOTADZE, Georgia
PROJECT: Interim monitoring of the three-year reform of the Youth Agency

For as long as he can remember, Davit has always been civically active, so he was engaged and interested in politics. Davit has worked with organizations ranging from small youth organizations to larger international research companies, then he co-created CSO and now works as the president of the Human Rights Research Center (HRRC). HRRC works with different vulnerable youth groups by using non-formal education as a tool to ensure equal access to education. For Davit, HRRC is the biggest achievement he has ever had, so he is using all the developing competencies to increase his capabilities to successfully transform it into a think tank, as it was intended from the very beginning.

Davit holds a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the Caucasus University (CU), and a Master’s degree in Political Science from the Ilia State University. Additionally, he will spend 2022-2023 academic year at University of Wroclaw as part of the Lane Kirkland Scholarship Program.

“In March 2022, I was participating in Swedish Phase of the International Training Programme: Human Rights Based Approach organized by Swedish International Centre for Local Democracy (ICLD). It was dinner time so we were sitting around the table and I was joking about one person from the organizing team (who is now my dearest friend) that when he is with me good things are happening to me. At this exact moment, when my phone connected to the hotel’s Wi-Fi I received an email noticing me that my project was selected. I remember all the details of this day because I already knew that this exact moment would be life-changing for me.”– Davit TOTADZE
