Project objective

The “CSO DePo: CSO Development Program” at large aims at strengthening Civil Society Organizations’ capacity in Armenia under USAID’s Development Grants Program (DGP). It fosters sustainable civil society development through strengthening the capacity of CSOs as critical actors to advance and oversee reform, improve services and contribute to the development of more effective governance in the economic, democratic, health and social spheres.


CRRC-Armenia, within The Consortium of six NGOs led by Eurasia Partnership Foundation (EPF) in Armenia, will design and implement CSO needs assessment baseline market research including:

  • a quantitative survey among 100 CSOs across Armenia;
  • a qualitative study (focus-group discussions, in-depth and expert interviews) among main stakeholders (including CSOs participating in the Project).

The findings of the study will be used by the Consortium to develop a special Armenia-tailored CSO Capacity Measurement Tool.

During the Project, CRRC-Armenia will also provide professional expertise and training to CSOs on research design and implementation, data collection, and data analysis.
