"Learn! Get empowered! Take action!" training course

Training Course

12 January 2017 | Yerevan, Armenia

"Human Rights Common Platform" Social NGO invites refugee Syrian-Armenian women who currently live in Armenia to take part in training series called "Learn! Get empowered! Take action!". Training series are designed to help Syrian-Armenian women of all ages living in Armenia to become more informed, active and independent. Training series include: • language courses (English and Armenian) • introduction to Armenian legislation and human rights • communication, negotiation, time management skills and independent work • CV and motivation letter writing skills The course is free of charge and is based on voluntary participation. We encourage interested women to fill out this form: https://goo.gl/forms/pyZQWn1nBWnZrtm93 If you have questions contact us by e-mail: humanrights.cp@gmail.com or call us for registration to 055 499 382. More about the topic: As you may already know, the refugee women and girls from Syria who currently live in Armenia are vulnerable in terms of integration into contemporary Armenian society. They have little to no knowledge about their rights and how to protect them, and where to address for their protection in case of the need, because of the language barrier and the lack of knowledge about their rights in terms of local legislation and the specific UN, EU conventions, RA laws/codes and all the treaties concerning them and their rights. The discrimination towards refugees from Syria (fled to Armenia between 2011-2016) is rooted in the fact of the Republic of Armenia being mono-nation (99% Armenians) which creates the ground for discrimination against any kind of expression or existence of foreign nationals. The integration of refugees are not fully supported by both society and state, mostly they face difficulties finding jobs, residencies/renting apartments, getting education, medical care, insurance etc.. In the level of personal relations there are many stereotypical approaches towards refugees (ex. The refugees from Azerbaijan are not Armenians they treated their nation they speak the language of the enemy, or Syrians are presumably all Muslims and they are all disrespecting the Armenian traditions (of being Christian etc.). Human Rights Common Platform social NGO witnessed that Syrian-Armenian women are left alone with their problems and decided to help them become more empowered and informed about their rights. Empowering refugee women and promoting gender equality is crucial to accelerating sustainable development. Ending all forms of discrimination against women and girls is not only a basic human right, but it also has a multiplier effect across all other development areas.

All of our projects have been initiated and led by women, we also give a vast importance to women exclusive safe spaces. Our approach to feminism is inter-sectional, which means we not only value women's participation, but we also make sure that women who are less privileged can make their voice heard and be active part of the decision making process and conduction of their own projects in the frames of our NGO.
