Call for Experts

Society Without Violence NGO

Society Without Violence NGO (SWV) is a women’s rights defender organization founded in 2001. Since its establishment the organization is implementing projects focusing on women’s empowerment, awareness raising, promotion of social activism and leadership skills among women. Our mission is to contribute to women’s participation in the socio-economic and political life of Armenia.

Since 2004 SWV has been working with Kvinna Till Kvinna (KTK) Swedish Foundation that promotes women’s rights in more than 20 countries and during the recent years the partnership has been focused on contributing to the establishment of gender sensitive educational system in Armenia.

To tackle this gap SWV launches a new project “Enabling accessible and sustained gender education in Armenia(n)” with the financial support of KTK. The main objective of the project is to develop and construct gender education courses with the aim to create online academic platform on gender studies.
