Gender Education

 One of the main pillars of SWV is women’s awareness and empowerment. In order to fulfill this mission, SWV puts an emphasis on education. Since the foundation of the organization, numerous non-formal training sessions have been held for girls and women. The objectives of these training sessions are to raise awareness about gender equality and women's rights, to empower and strengthen the skills of young girls and women, to break the stereotypes, to increase knowledge about prevention and to overcome domestic and gender-based violence.

However, SWV does not limit itself to only non-formal education. SWV views gender education as a basis for domestic violence prevention and have taken measures to ensure gender education becomes a formal aspect of school curricula in the Republic of Armenia. Gender education 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.
