In Armenia, social development, like economic development, is deeply intertwined with our cultural values and family structures. As the saying goes, "Family is the cornerstone of society"; families play a fundamental role in creating a foundation and structure for a healthy society. Nurturing children in a healthy family environment, instilling in them a strong value system, morals, ethics, and an understanding of socially acceptable behaviour are crucial steps in this process.

Children in Armenia grow up to become the future of our society, and their success is determined by their contributions on both a micro (family, friends) and macro (society) scale. Whether they come from a two-parent household, a single-parent household, or are raised by a guardian, the responsibility remains the same: to raise children who are kind, caring, and contributing members of society.

The prevalence of domestic violence poses a significant challenge to this ideal. Domestic violence is a serious issue that affects individuals, families, and communities, and it can have long-lasting effects on society as a whole. When families are unable to provide a safe and nurturing environment, it can lead to societal ills and hinder social development.

Join us for a fireside chat with Ani Jilozian as we explore the topics of family, culture, gender, and social values in Armenia. We will discuss how these interdependent issues shape our society and contribute to its social and economic development.
