EVN Youth Report aims to provide a platform for Armenia’s youth to discuss issues that impact their lives. We hope to encourage the youth to be more conscious of the political, social, cultural and economic developments taking place in Armenia, understand the pivotal role and impact that media has on society, and provide a space to have their voices heard and their stories told.
This project is funded in part by a grant from the United States Department of State.

When the war broke out in Artsakh in the early 1990s, Aida Serobyan was a 36-year-old doctor and mother of three. She decided to volunteer for two months as a field doctor, but ended up staying for two years until the end of the war in 1994. Although she helped to heal the injured, she herself was wounded four times on the battlefield. This is her story.

Throughout the years when Kurdish language and culture were banned in Turkey, Radio Yerevan served as a bridge between the Kurdish people and their culture.
