TOGETHER4ARMENIA CONNECTS 62 EXPERTS FROM 14 COUNTRIES TO 52 PROJECTS IN ARMENIA. MORE TO COME WITH THE REVAMPED PLATFORM

June 28, 2018, YEREVAN – UNICEF, European Union in Armenia and AGBU Armenia, joined by the Deputy Minister of Diaspora Davit Sargsyan, presented the revamped Together4Armenia (www.Together4Armenia.am) platform today. With a number of upgraded functionalities, the platform will build efficient and lasting connections between local communities and non-profit organisations and experts from the global Armenian community.

Together4Armenia encourages intellectual volunteering by bridging the gap between local initiatives and professionals from the diaspora, ready to invest knowledge for community development in Armenia. The new platform has user-friendly system of registration and guides the sides into the next stages of cooperation. Upgraded with a search mechanism and built-in messaging system, it quickly finds and automatically matches community projects with experts based on their expertise and local needs.

“Together4Armenia platform facilitates the transfer of knowledge, experience, and goodwill, which is increasingly important for today’s Armenia. We are hopeful that this platform will harness diaspora’s intellectual potential to develop and empower Armenian communities and ensure wellbeing for families and their children,” noted UNICEF Representative in Armenia Tanja Radocaj.

Since 2016, more than 60 professionals from the diaspora have shared their knowledge with over 2100 beneficiaries in various regions of Armenia through this free web-platform. Their contribution and guidance helped to solve different community issues and give a fresh impetus to sectors, ranging from education to agriculture, innovative technology, project management and much more.

“For AGBU, a vibrant and capable civil society is a precondition for building a strong Armenia. We believe that engaging professionals from the diaspora is a unique way of strengthening Armenian civil society and creating long-standing bridges between the diaspora and Armenia. This is our double bottom line, and Togeter4Armenia platform serves that objective,” said Arsen Stepanyan, Team Leader of Bridge for CSOs project at AGBU Armenia.

At the event, participants heard the testimonies of the experts and beneficiaries of Together4Armenia and discussed the value of intellectual volunteering as a meaningful way of engagement to bring tangible change in Armenia.
