USAID/Armenia’s Acting Mission Director, David Hoffman, visited Ijevan InfoTun
On his visit to Armenia’s Tavush marz, USAID/Armenia’s Acting Mission Director, David Hoffman, visited USAID-supported Ijevan InfoTun to meet this very dynamic and energetic group of community activists and volunteers.
Since its inception, InfoTun has been critical in addressing pressing community needs and monitoring the local government operations across the marz. Ijevan InfoTun was established in 2013, and is one of ten InfoTuns across Armenia that is working to boost media literacy and encourage the use of new media.
InfoTun encourages citizen participation in producing news and serves as an information-sharing hub on community issues. During their meeting, youth activists shared how they recently engaged with local governments in their marz in the challenging COVID-19 environment.
