Support to Victims of Gender-based Violence and Vulnerable Groups


Thirty-nine women exposed to the risk of gender-based violence have received a special training in the framework of the UNFPA/Armenia funded project implemented by the ICHD led Consortium against Gender-based Violence in Armenia in late September. The training facilitated by Tatev-95 NGO provided relevant knowledge to potential victims of violence and equipped them with skills to prevent gender-based violence at home, in the work place and in society at large. The training also enabled the consortium partners to learn about the practical concerns and needs of the at-risk-groups. The participants underlined the lack of legal mechanism to protect women's rights, to prevent violence and to support victims of violence. They have also emphasized the important role that police should play in preventing and prosecuting the violence , as well as the serious gaps in this area.

After the training 17 women - victims of gender-based violence requested Tatev-95 to provide further psychological assistance. Several victims have been referred to ICHD's partner by other hospitals, health centers and NGOs. In late September 2010, Tatev 95, under overall supervision of ICHD and UNFPA/Armenia developed a 2-days module for training of specialists delivering psychological assistance to the victims of gender based violence. In early October Tatev 95 delivers training to psychologists in this area.
