The project partners’ educational visits continued on 29 and 30 March 2019 in Yerevan, Armenia.
During the educational visit to Yerevan, organized by the Armenian Young Women’s Association, good practices were presented in the field of social entrepreneurship and the development of tea as a lever for the development of the region. More specifically, two examples of social enterprises were presented, one of which was purely female, members of which came from socially vulnerable groups of the population. The business was concerned with the production, standardization and marketing of aromatic tea grown in the region. The presentations were led by a World Bank representative as a promoter of women’s entrepreneurship in the agri-food sector and in particular the use of aromatic plants. The presentations were accompanied by a visit to traditional tea houses to get familiarized with the varieties of tea in the area and their special way of preparation and standardization. During the visit to Yerevan, the second management meeting of the project partners took place in order to resolve issues during the implementation of the project but also to update the timetable of the subsequent project actions.
