The toolkit will help the community institutions to make their activities more transparent, the citizens of the communities of the enlarged settlements to receive more information about the activities of those institutions, as well as the use of civil control mechanisms.

The educational component of the program will provide media literacy trainings in 6 settlements with the participation of young people, citizens, using social networking sites, using the official page of Dilijan enlarged community, writing online applications, and other electronic opportunities and mechanisms for communication with the municipality (). The project will also contribute to the inclusion of strategic initiative initiatives by community-based organizations in the Community’s 5-year Development Plan and their effective budget funding.

In the case of project activities and the use of innovative toolkits, the consequences of COVID-19 are minimized in local non-governmental bodies-citizen relations, as well as in terms of organizing activities by community NGOs online or in terms of publishing information, the toolkit allows you to work more accountable.
