Reception of refugees

The country of Georgia is so far open to people who have been marginalized in their homeland and have become religious refugees in neighboring countries. Part of these refugees come from the Persian Gulf, defined as the countries with a Farsi speaking population. It includes Iran, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan and Tajikistan. The refugees from Iran in particular have been severely affected by war, have fled and live in poverty, or have been used in human trafficking. This has led many young people to lose hope and often seek refuge in the West.

The organization CIC has developed a strategy to deal with these political and economic challenges. It is an organization founded and led by an Iranian who has developed a unique Business as Mission approach to reaching the Persian Gulf.
