Starting in the March of this year, The Right Side Human Rights Defender NGO has been implementing a new project funded by The Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation, aimed to empower young members of the LGBTQI+ community to become change-makers in their society. In the framework of the project, The Right Side NGO has organized training with the participation of 20 young LGBTQI+ people between the ages of 18-30 from Yerevan and different regions of RA.
The training equipped participants with all the competencies necessary to fight against gender violence, conduct online or offline activism and run advocacy campaigns against hate speech on social networks, protect themselves from hate crimes and discrimination, and prevent human rights violation cases. Through the program, participants gained the ability to develop project ideas from the first until the last stages to achieve long-term results, developed leadership and responsible decision-making skills, and learned to measure the effectiveness of their projects and adjust their strategies as needed.
Some of the outcomes of the project have been an action plan drawn up by the participants, and a card game on human rights and ideas on preventing gender-based violation cases.
