Integration Club For Social Change
Integration Club For Social Change
Our priorities are that we believe that women and men are equal. We do our best to protect the rights of women and give them opportunities to fight for their rights. My dream as a child was to have a world where men and women were equal.
I’m proud of the young woman who had 3 children and took part in my program. She had no work experience and no formal education. After completing my program she became very empowered and decided to continue her education to become a programmer and work to be successful. I really believe that after our project, women can get empowered, work for themselves and fight for their rights.
The problem we are trying to solve:
It is very important for me to solve the problem in my community that women do not earn as much as men just because they are women. And they don’t have any birthrights, reproductive rights in my community.It is important for me to show the world that men and women are equal and to show that they can have equal opportunities.
The solution we are proposing:
This funding will give me the opportunity to develop an umbrella project which contains small women led initiatives/ groups. The main idea is to empower young women and help them grow together. Within our project, we will gather strong and powerful young women who want to make some positive changes in their communities. Our Club will take the role of coordinating and organizing the whole project. The project is called "Women Leadership Club" and it aims to organize discussions and training about women's rights, youth opportunities, and community development.The core idea is that strong and successful women who have reached success in their professional career will share their experience with younger ones. It will help our participants to grow personally, develop their skills and act as young leaders in their communities. The program will greatly help us to change the issues in our community. We have a strong team who I rely on and work with and I would do my best to make them proud.
What success looks like for us:
Success looks like one day I will wake up and see that men will never say ‘you are a woman, you can’t go there, you can’t do this’. I would wake up in a world and see that men will say ‘yes, you are a woman and you need to decide with us because we are equal.
Where we are are based:
Armavir Region, Armenia
Funding we are applying for:
$14,000 - $15,000 per year
How this funding will help us achieve our goals:
This funding will help us a lot because it is very important to have the idea and have the motivation but funding helps to hire the best trainers, hire good venues and support training.
How this funding will strengthen our group:
The funding will strengthen the organization because we will be able to build many different branches in other parts of Armenia and reach more people who will spread our ideas of equality.
How we gain by being a Spark Fund partner:
The Spark Fund will help us get great education, opportunity to meet with other youth leaders and learn from them. Money doesn’t matter when you have a great idea as we can fight for it but funding can help us spread our idea beyond our region and show everyone that a single woman can change the world.
How we would like to spend a grant through the Spark Fund:
We will spend the funding on implementing our umbrella project of small women led initiatives/ groups. The main idea is to empower young women and help them grow together. Within our project, we will gather strong and powerful young women who want to make some positive changes in their communities. We aim to organize discussions and training about women's rights, youth opportunities, and community development to help our participants to grow personally, develop their skills and act as young leaders in their communities.
Our Annual Income:
0 (Due to Covid, previous year was 4500 EUR)
Our Organization Structure:
The organization's decisions are made by everyone because we are a democratic people and as a leader, I believe that we can create a world for equality where everyone’s voice can be heard. The power is shared among our organization in equal way. We have different groups that are responsible for different things like education, culture, cooperation. Each group has a leader. The ideas are discussed with all members of the group. We are a youth-led organization and young people are involved because young people can be involved and they are the generation who are going to break the gap of civilization and end stereotypes about equality.
