NEF launches new activities in Armenia!

NEF is excited to announce that it will soon be launching new programming in Armenia that will be specifically targeted toward strengthening the capacity of local civil society organizations (CSOs) that are focused on improving gender equality and women's economic empowerment in Armenia.

Building on the success and momentum of past experience, NEF will help 12 Armenian CSOs improve, diversify, and sustain their technical and organizational capacity to improve their ability to effectively deliver programs that support economically empowering women. These efforts will support 600 vulnerable Armenian women - including survivors of gender-based violence, and women at risk of gender discrimination - to safely access business development and employability training. 

After its successful project to advance gender equality and the rights of survivors of gender-based violence, NEF looks forward to re-launching these efforts in Armenia. Project activities are scheduled to launch in early 2018. We look forward to sharing more updates on our progress with you soon!
