Study on the needs and priorities of ethnic minority women in the Kvemo Kartli region

Organisation: UN Women Year: 2014

Like ethnic minority women all over the world, those in Kvema Kartli region in Georgia contend with a variety of challenges including limited access to health, education and other services.

These challenges have huge impacts on communities, often pushing families to marry off their daughters. Married girls and girls at risk of child marriage are all the more vulnerable when they are part of a marginalised ethnic community.
