EU4Gender Equality programme promotes gender equality in Tavush region of Armenia

May 11, 2022

The EU4GenderEquality programme is supporting the ‘Caring for Equality’ educational course, recently organised in the Tavush region of Armenia. 

The course was organised by the Gyumri Youth Initiative Centre and conducted by World Vision Armenia Foundation, and saw young women and men discuss their respective roles in the family. The course focuses on changing stereotypes about these roles and increasing men’s involvement in childcare and household chores.

Our meetings aim to increase valuing the girl child in the family, which will reduce sex-selective abortion. Our ultimate goal is to break gender stereotypes and reach an equal allotment of roles of women and men in the family. Wife and husband should be equally involved in ensuring the family’s well-being,” said Narine Stepanyan, the World Vision Armenia social worker.

The ‘Caring for Equality’ course is conducted in the framework of the ‘EU4GenderEquality: Together against gender stereotypes and gender-based violence’ programme, funded by the European Union and implemented jointly by UN Women and UNFPA in the Eastern partner countries.
