Rural communities in Armenia are full of problems and there is a widespread indifference. In rural areas, people live in extreme poverty. Some of these people are active young people who leave their homes in despair, because of the situation. This project will provide them with the necessary journalistic, research, media skills and capacities to find solutions to these problems.
We train young, motivated journalists to cover their community issues. The training include the following topics: Civic Journalism, Communication Skills, Presentation Skills, Social Platforms, and Information Technology. Knowing the journalistic and media skills, the 110 young experts from the new generation will be able to identify and solve existing problems.
This project will teach 110 young journalists to study Armenian communities and identify their problems. Young experts of the new generation will share their knowledge and experience with other community members. Community problems will become visible and diminish the level of the indifference of the residents. They will not leave their villages and will seek a job in their communities.
