On April 2, 2015, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) awarded a five-year Cooperative Agreement to the East-West Management Institute (EWMI), a New York-based not-for-profit organization, to implement a human rights and justice support program entitled Promoting Rule of Law in Georgia (PROLoG) Activity. The purpose of PROLoG is to strengthen the justice system to ensure due process, judicial independence, and the protection of human rights.
In spring 2020, PROLoG conducted third round of Legal Aid Grant Competition with the aim to identify strategic litigation cases appropriate for promoting the rights of women and marginalized groups, before the courts of common jurisdiction, the Constitutional Court and the European Court for Human Rights. The new grants were awarded to local NGOs who work to increase access to justice for women and marginalized groups by providing legal aid and representation in strategic litigation cases that promote the rights of religious and ethnic minorities, women, children, people with disabilities, and other marginalized groups, including the LGBTQ community.
