Thus far, the activities of the Fund in Georgia were mainly limited to subsidising projects selected through open grant competitions presented by Polish NGOs. Since 2012, there have been several dozens of such projects. They addressed areas such as supporting media (especially local and regional), civic education, and social participation; promoting voluntary services and mediation; supporting Georgian self-governments; and implementing participatory budgeting. In 2017, in partnership with Other Space Foundation and Georgian organisation One Caucasus, Solidarity Fund PL implemented its own project which covered improving the use of participatory budgeting mechanism in selected Georgian local government units (i.a. Marneuli and Gori). Moreover, on two occasions Solidarity Fund PL sent observers to Georgia as a part of the ODIHR/OSCE missions: in the 2013 presidential elections and in the 2016 parliamentary elections. In 2016 a local observation mission organised by Transparency International Georgia also received support. All the actions of the Fund where financed by Polish Development Cooperation.
