More about the topic:

As you may already know, the refugee women and girls from Syria who currently live in Armenia are vulnerable in terms of integration into contemporary Armenian society. They have little to no knowledge about their rights and how to protect them, and where to address for their protection in case of the need, because of the language barrier and the lack of knowledge about their rights in terms of local legislation and the specific UN, EU conventions, RA laws/codes and all the treaties concerning them and their rights.

The discrimination towards refugees from Syria (fled to Armenia between 2011-2016) is rooted in the fact of the Republic of Armenia being mono-nation (99% Armenians) which creates the ground for discrimination against any kind of expression or existence of foreign nationals.

The integration of refugees are not fully supported by both society and state, mostly they face difficulties finding jobs, residencies/renting apartments, getting education, medical care, insurance etc..

In the level of personal relations there are many stereotypical approaches towards refugees (ex. The refugees from Azerbaijan are not Armenians they treated their nation they speak the language of the enemy, or Syrians are presumably all Muslims and they are all disrespecting the Armenian traditions (of being Christian etc.).

Human Rights Common Platform social NGO witnessed that Syrian-Armenian women are left alone with their problems and decided to help them become more empowered and informed about their rights.

Empowering refugee women and promoting gender equality is crucial to accelerating sustainable development. Ending all forms of discrimination against women and girls is not only a basic human right, but it also has a multiplier effect across all other development areas.
