In the frames of the visit to Armavir regions on 9 October, Armenian YEAs held meetings with local NGOs and youth initiatives.
The first stop was at the Armavir Development Center, a community based non-governmental organization where YEAs had the chance to thoroughly examine the projects for youth implemented by the organization, and learn more about the youth issues in the region.
Next stop was at MITQ NGO. Apart from learning about the NGO activities, YEAs got the chance also to learn more about the youth needs of rural communities as MITQ works closely with the youth of rural communities near Armavir city. YEAs also got to know to the Armavir Youth Ambassadors, which is an EU-funded initiative, and presented YEAs network to them.
