The overall project goal is to work towards establishing a better social welfare system to protect the most vulnerable population groups in Armenia. The project addresses current social reforms in Armenia on Integrated Social Services, Child Protection, People with Disabilities, and Gender Equality.
The project aims to create a more participatory, effective, and accountable governance process in response to the need for civil society organizations and citizens to participate in the recent social reforms in Armenia. The project particularly addresses the fundamental gap between state‐level reform legislation and implementation and the actual needs of beneficiaries. The project will raise awareness among and strengthen professionals working in CSOs (social workers, lawyers, psychologists, pedagogues) to participate in the reform process and become mediators between decision makers and citizens. It will also strengthen citizen participation in reform activities, thus ensuring greater accountability and transparency for social reform implementation.
In the long run, the project aims to be able to contribute to the social and economic well-being of the most vulnerable population groups in Armenia.
