  • UNFPA,
  • CIDA,
  • DFID,
  • Council of Europe,
  • European Youth Foundation,
  • IFES etc.

Since 2005 AYWA has established a network of Youth Centres, in which now there are 3 Youth Centres – in Yerevan, Vayots Dzor and Lori marzes. A lot of young people are provided with the services of the Youth Centres – resource centre, library, cinema-corner, computer and internet access. The Network of Youth Centres is a member of European networks.

In 2006 AYWA has established “Youth Theatre”. It organizes performances in Yerevan and in the regions. Through the puppet theatre AYWA spreads knowledge about Human Rights and Women’s Rights within young people.

AYWA publishes a youth newspaper “New View” the aim of which is to raise awareness about young people’s problems in the Republic of Armenia.
