The aim of project was to bring together organisations and groups from Europe in order to enhance their cooperation in the field of gender and give them a platform to develop new projects and ideas within possibilities given under Youth in Action Programme .
The first part of the project included familiarization with the concept and functioning the Partnership Building Activity . The organizers have prepared an interesting game ideal joined of the theory of PBA . Then we are collectively dealt with the issue of equality between men and women. It was very interesting topic and originated a very interesting and passionate discussions. During the project we visited two local organizations addressing gender issues , it was very interesting and impressive meeting .
We lived in the center of Yerevan, only one kilometer from the presidential palace . In the background of our hotel loomed beautiful mountain Ararat where, according to legend, Noah’s Ark landed.
Armenia to me left a strong impression , one with a kind of mix of Turkish architecture and culture with southern european states and also people on the street are very pleasant and nice.
