Gender education

 One of the main pillars of SWV is women’s awareness and empowerment.In order to fulfill this mission SWV pays great attention to the educational factor. Since the first day of its foundation, the organization has organized  plenty of non formal trainings for women and girls aimed at raising the awareness about gender equality and women's rights. The main goal of these trainings is to empower and strengthen skills of young girl and women, to break the stereotypes, as well as to increase the knowledge about prevention and overcoming of domestic and gender-based violence. However, SWV does not limit itself to only non-formal education. Considering the gender education as a basis for domestic violence prevention, SWV has taken measure to ensure gender education becomes a formal aspect of school curricula in the Republic of Armenia and includes subjects relating to gender equality.As a means of promoting this activity, SWV along with National Institute of Education, developed and published a theoretical and practical guide "Man and Woman, Different but Equal", which will be given to all schools in the Republic of Armenia.   



“I have the right to live, even if my parents did not plan my arrival to the world and decide to stop fetal development. Anyway, I have the right to live.
I have the right to love, I will love, even if I am rejected.
I have the right to speak, even if for this I am to be put behind bars.
I have the right to remain silent, even if I am to be tortured. They try to break me. “

The text above is a piece of Zaruhi’s own convention. A convention she has written by herself and calls "My Rights." Zaruhi is a human rights defender and activist who believes in a strong civil society and that although we are all different we should have equal rights.
