The Roddy Scott Foundation is an educational charity dedicated to teaching English and providing career opportunities to the children of the Pankisi Gorge.

Named after Roddy Scott, a pioneering BBC journalist who was killed while reporting on the 2nd Chechen war, the foundation is the most established NGO in the region. The foundation has a focus on English language tuition, and has over 270 students from all of the valley’s villages.

Our students have taken part in national competitions and international exchange programs, and hundreds of our alumni are now within university system and are employed locally, nationally or around the world.

With your continued support we can continue making a positive impact on the future of the Pankisi Valley. Thank you for your interest!
