United Nations World food Programme

WFP is the food aid arm of the United Nations system. Food aid is one of the many instruments that can help to promote food security, which is defined as access of all people at all times to the food needed for an active and healthy life.

WFP has been present in Armenia since late 1993. Food distributions were started in 1994 under an emergency operation targeting refugees from Azerbaijan. In 1999, the emergency operation was replaced with a Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation (PRRO), reaching 110,000 beneficiaries, including resident vulnerable groups.

The current operation contributes to the recovery process in line with the national priorities of poverty eradication, enhancing national safety nets, improving rural infrastructure and fostering education through relief food distributions, food-for-education and food-for-work/training activities.

WFP's current operation assists 110,000 people with 27,948 metric tons of food at an overall cost of US$13.2 million. A follow-on operation, covering the period until December 2008, is underway to ensure a smooth handover to the Government and other stakeholders.

Peace Dialogue NGO

Peace Dialogue is an NGO registered in Armenia in 2009. It unites different peace and civil activists from Armenia, Russia, Georgia, Germany, and the Netherlands. 
For more than six years, Peace Dialogue NGO has been working in the peace-building field and, with its partners, has tried to create a peace movement and peace culture in the Caucasus region.

Through civil engagement (the development of civil activism), Peace Dialogue promotes a culture of peace and tries to contribute to forming a global peace movement. In such a culture, everyone would understand their role and responsibility in the community and in peace acquisition and maintenance in the country and the region. Citizens would be vested with the right to demand peace from the authorities and struggle for the rule of law, social justice, and civic engagement in social and political processes.

Given the existing problems and socio-economic context, it is expected that education, non-violent resistance, and change-directed dialogue are the best methods for promoting the organization's four main strategic directions:

-       formation of peace-building and civil potential,

-       formation of respect for human rights and democratic values,

-       promotion of civil peace initiatives,

-       advocacy on behalf of victims of conflicts.
