Gubaz Koberidze


I am a passionate trainer, youth worker, human rights educator and activist! I have jumped in non-formal education in 2010 and realized it was the right place for me... Then I found myself as a trainer and now working as a full time freelance trainer since 2015.

I believe in the power of non-formal education for fighting for positive change.
