Gender inequality and sexual violence has become a prevalent issue in Armenia, particularly given the absence of state mechanisms to protect victims. The Sexual Assault Crisis Centre (SACC), is an organisation that aims to change the discriminatory narrative, attitudes and behaviour among state and non-state actors, as well as among the public, towards sexual violence in Armenia through awareness-raising activities. It also aims to help establish better response mechanisms locally and on the state level, as well as to address the issue through extensive capacity-building trainings for regional NGOs.
