Since 2011, USAID has supported the establishment of InfoTuns to boost media literacy and the use of new media in various corners of Armenia. Network of InfoTuns is located in 8 cities of Armenia: Ararat, Armavir, Goris, Gyumri, Ijevan, Martuni, Vanadzor and Vayk. Run by young activists, InfoTuns serve as information sharing hubs that engage in local community life. They organize activities ranging from media literacy training to film screenings and “flash mobs” that raise public awareness on issues of local importance. InfoTuns also initiate public discussions on local governance, human rights, youth, social policy, and public accountability at the local and national levels. Moreover, InfoTuns enhance the capacity of the youth and civil society groups to address local community issues through various tools and mechanisms. Currently InfoTun Network is engaged in two USAID funded projects: Civic Engagement in Local Governance and Media for Informed Civic Engagement.
