The Armenia Integrity Project (AIP) is a five-year program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by Dexis Consulting Group. The aim of the project is to reduce opportunities for corruption and reinforce public demand for improved governance and accountability in Armenia through:
Strengthening corruption prevention institutions and integrity systems.
Supporting the implementation of specific legal-regulatory measures for corruption prevention.
And facilitating a collective citizen action approach to hold national and local level government entities engaged in corruption prevention mutually accountable.
The Armenia Integrity Project is supporting the Ministry of Justice’s effort to increase the public’s trust in and use of the Unified Electronic Platform for Whistleblowing (www.azdararir.am) by raising awareness and educating the public on available governmental tools and general information (for example, the protection of whistleblowers) so that it is more understandable by the public.
This RFA is seeking organization(s) capable of leading awareness-raising campaigns in Yerevan and other regions of Armenia to promote public support for individuals who speak up against and report corruption: whistleblowers. Despite often facing threats to their livelihoods and even their lives, whistleblowers frequently are met with suspicion. This RFA seeks to support initiatives that aim to reduce negative perceptions surrounding whistleblowers, raise awareness about their vital role in the fight for a fairer society and their right to protection, and highlight the role of the unified electronic reporting system (azdararir.am) as well as other reporting mechanisms.
