PRUMC has been serving the Imereti (western) region of Georgia since 1999. We work closely with our Partner, GeorgiaforGeorgia (formerly named ISGY) to break the cycle of generational poverty through education. Our efforts focus on keeping kids healthy enough to remain in school (through Sponsor a Child program that provides nutritious meals, clothing, medical and dental care), and providing the skills and training students need to ultimately support their own families.

PRUMC remains committed to our partnership with GeorgiaforGeorgia and we look forward to traveling again to the Country of Georgia in late 2021.  Pre-registration is open and we have tentative dates set. For further information, please contact Dawn Hawkins at  No construction experience required – only a service heart and willingness to sling a hammer or play a game of ball.
