Modern Armenian society challenges a lot of factors influencing on its balanced and sustainable development. There are many active political and social disputes which we need to overcome all together. And thanks to some active initiatives and organizations, this process is being changed.
Society Without Violence (SWV) is a NGO founded in 2001 for the social change in Armenian society. Having bright and motivated young members, they are always active and do their best to make Armenia a better place. Being actively involved in Armenian regions, it promotes regional development as well. The main vision of this beautiful initiative is to have society without violence, and they state “society where the country will be governed by people adherent to true democracy values, people who respect and promote gender equality, society where there will be no space for violence against women”.
