Upper Nikoz Village is located in the north-central part of Georgia, just over 800 meters from the Tskhinvali, the capital of South Ossetia, where the Georgian military conflict occurred. After South Ossetia declared its independence, the Tskhinvali area was stationed by the Russian border guards. Although there are only 340 households in the village of Upper Nikoz, it is already a medium-sized village in Georgia. Since the conflict between Georgia and Russia, the only source of school in the village has been significantly reduced.
Principal Tamas said that this is because after the conflict, some people in the village moved their families to live elsewhere, and on the other hand, the birth rate in the village was reduced.
Late autumn, the classroom was very cold. The government allocates funds to the school according to the number of students. Each student has only a few dozens of Larry. The monthly income of teachers is 120-350 lari (1 lari is about 4 yuan). The school is very tight, so there is no money to use natural gas. Heating, only firewood, there is no electric light in the classroom.
