‘Locally-led Action for Development of Goris Community’ Program

Goris Press Club (GPC) together with Eurasia Partnership Foundation (EPF) is implementing a program titled ‘Locally-led Action for Development of Goris Community’ (hereinafter the Program) that commenced in March 2023, and will be implemented until February 2026. The Program is supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

Goris consolidated community is an important communication hub for Armenia and the Syunik region. Goris is relatively far from Yerevan, and it has a potential to become a center for the south of Armenia in terms of civil society, education and culture. Therefore, it is important to invest in the institutional and human capacities of the community to ensure sustainable development and progress. This can be achieved through the establishment of cooperative relations between various community stakeholders and development of collective vision of the community to collaboratively work towards common goals.

The goal of the Program is to increase the resilience of the Goris consolidated community via strengthening the capacity and commitment of the community to lead its development and enhance citizen engagement and oversight in the decision-making process.
