Civil Society Actors as Drivers of Change in South Caucasus and Moldova
We implement the project in South Caucasus and Moldova with the support of European Commission. The project aims to strengthen the role of Civil Society Actors (CSAs) as legitimate and trusted governance actors advancing the democratization processes in target countries.
The project will contribute to developing ambitious but realistic plans on who civil society actors want to be and what they want to achieve in the upcoming year, offering funding linked to their strategic and development plans, as well as to initiatives. PIN will support learning by doing, thematic research, campaigns,exchanges and alliances. Selected participants will have an opportunity to take part in trainings, study visits and consultations, adjusted to their specific needs.
Advocating for supporting the reform of the Armenian Public Broadcaster
People in Need is implementing a project, advocating for the reform of the Armenian Public Broadcaster to become a model of the independent media, which will genuinely serve the Armenian audience. The project supported the creation of the coalition group of experts, represented by parliamentarians, top management of the Public Broadcaster, media and legal experts and journalists.
The project contributes to the development of capacity building and training activities for the coalition and journalists to address the problem and find the solution for the independence and efficiency of the Armenian Public TV and Radio regulation. Among those main issues are the effective regulatory model, financial and political independence and editorial policy-making.
Project is supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic in the frame of Transition Promotion Program.
Previously PIN has already worked with independent journalists to battle the hate speech in the Armenian media landscape and supported small documentary film clubs in the regions.
