Steve Denne, Heifer International Chief Operating Officer, and Pietro Turilli, Vice President of Central and Eastern European programs, are visiting Heifer projects in Georgia. In the coming days we will share more about their visit, but we first want to introduce to our Georgian team. 


by Medea Tsitskishvili, Heifer Georgia


Heifer International has been working in Georgia since 1999, and has an independent office in the country since 2007. This is the fourth year of Heifer Georgia’s activities undertaken by a rather small but energetic and innovative team of five highly-dedicated, professional staff members.

George Murvanidze has more than 20 years of experience in working with international organizations including  Save the Children, UNDP, CARE International, and USAID. He holds a Ph.D. in biology from Moscow State University and has taken various international training courses in agriculture production and marketing, project monitoring and evaluation, and community mobilization. Under his leadership, Heifer Georgia has made much progress in country program development. George is a member of Georgian National Animal Health Program Steering Committee, which is financially supported by USDA. The committee is lobbying animal health issues and livestock supporting programs.


Natalia Gambarashvili, Finance Administrator
Natalia Gambarashvili is responsible for the office and projects related to financial issues and reporting. This includes accounting, providing financial training and support to the project holders -- monitoring their financial reports every three months, preparing tax and financial reports and at times assisting project holders in questions relating to their own tax reports. Natalia holds a university degree in English language and literature and has undergone various training courses in accounting to Georgian tax legislation, public management and project monitoring. Natalia joined Heifer Georgia in 2008, and previously worked in international organizations such as Mercy Corps and Save the Children.

She is involved in communications with Heifer Georgia’s local and international partner organizations, field staff, and Heifer's main headquarters. Medea holds a university degree in liberal arts and has undergone various international training programs in principles of international bookkeeping and tax law, agriculture development and management, and business English. Medea joined Heifer Georgia in 2007, but she has been involved in Heifer activities in Georgia since 2003.
