EU-LEAD4Shirak project launch

On July 15, the Young European Ambassadors from Armenia were invited to Gyumri to the launch ceremony of the EU-LEAD4Shirak project. The YEAs had the opportunity to present the network and learn more about the projects implemented under Lead4Shirak for future cooperation. They also met the youth of Gyumri and presented the network, as well as several EU-funded opportunities.

LEAD4Shirak is funded by the European Union and the Austrian Development Cooperation and implemented by the Austrian Development Agency. It aims to contribute to reducing poverty, inequality and vulnerability through integrated, sustainable and participatory rural development by introducing the LEADER approach to improve employment, rural economy, community empowerment and living conditions of rural population and their resilience, while protecting the environment and mainstreaming gender equality.
