On October 1, 2019, UNFPA Armenia Country Office, together with its partners GirlsInTech Armenia and Arevik Social and Educational Center, hosted fourteen young people from Tavush province of Armenia to mark the completion of the five-month Tech and Business Mentorship Program for Youth.

Three groups of teeanagers made presentations on three selected buisiness/tech ideas:

"ECOline" plastic waste processing initiative,

"Go to Ijevan" tourism project,

and "Tea Time" anti-cafe.

At the end, the participants received certificates of completion.

The program lasted from July-September 2019, and was aimed at providing participants with the essential basic knowledge in tech and business via simple tools they'll be able to use in their daily life later as well. It mostly targeted the development of a number of skill-sets for the participants including idea generation, budget estimation, technical solutions, fundraising, negotiations and presentation. It also focused on the community needs while generating ideas for technical business solutions so that participants will be able to create something for their community benefits.
