Today Ambassador Kelly Degnan with Mayor Zaur Tabatadze opened Georgia’s ninth American Corner, which is a result of a partnership between the Embassy and Marneuli Municipality.
“The US Embassy is committed to offering non-formal educational opportunities in every region of the country for people to learn more about the United States and develop the skills necessary to help Georgia grow and adapt in a changing world,” reads the US Embassy statement. “Today, Ambassador Degnan joined Mayor Zaur Tabatadze to open Georgia’s ninth American Corner, a partnership between the Embassy and Marneuli Municipality.
“The new Marneuli American Corner, inside the city library, will offer non-formal English language and American cultural programs, with an emphasis on STEM education and civic engagement. The US Embassy supports American Corners in Akhaltsikhe, Batumi, Khashuri, Kutaisi, Rustavi, Tbilisi, Telavi, and Zugdidi, as well as Bookmobile in the Tserovani area. By the end of the summer, the Embassy will also have American Shelves in five more Georgian communities.”
