Giorgi Sinauridze is the Students For Liberty Regional Coordinator for the Caucasus, in addition to being a medical professional. He joined SFL as a Local Coordinator in Tbilisi in 2017, but soon became the National Coordinator for Georgia. With his vision to expand the promotion of liberty outside of Georgia, he successfully established local groups in Azerbaijan and Armenia and became a Regional Coordinator for the Caucasus. Now, we have an active, independent group in Azerbaijan and a growing volunteer group in Armenia. Through Giorgi’s dedication, these groups have joined forces for several projects in Georgia.
Giorgi has also established a lasting partnership with Friedrich Naumann Foundation – South Caucasus, which is currently our biggest partner in Georgia. With Giorgi’s involvement, Georgian Students For Liberty and Friedrich Naumann Foundation – South Caucasus have worked closely together on several projects. He launched several in-depth educational projects in partnership with the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for an audience of Georgian students. These include “Why Politics”, a school dedicated to educating young people interested in politics, and “Why Liberty”, a three-day summer school, featuring sessions about liberty in every aspect.
Along with these schools, Giorgi managed to secure the partnership of Friedrich Naumann Foundation – South Caucasus for most of SFL’s larger conferences in Georgia. He managed to raise $34,000 in funds from Friedrich Naumann Foundation – South Caucasus last year alone, and a similar sum this year. Alongside these activities, Giorgi organized John Galt School with Ayn Rand Center Europe (ARCE), and later expanded the regional partnership with ARCE and the Prometheus Foundation to organize the Ayn Rand Conference, a program for John Galt School graduates.
Furthermore, along with Mariam Gogolishvili, also an SFL alumna, he founded Leaders of Tomorrow, an organization offering talented students from the Caucasus the opportunity to travel to international conferences and participate in projects, including SFL events, that advance their future careers through.
European Students For Liberty recognized Giorgi’s achievements by awarding him with the Leader of the Year award in 2022, and Giorgi went on to be recognized as one of Students For Liberty’s Top 3 global leaders.
