Counterpart International began working in Armenia in 2001 when its portfolio was limited to the Community and Humanitarian Assistance Program (CHAP), which aims to help communities in need with humanitarian supplies donated by governments, corporations, charitable organizations and individuals.
In 2004, Counterpart International enlarged its presence in Armenia with its robust Civic Advocacy Support Program (CASP), funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), with the main goal to improve democratic governance in Armenia.
In 2010, Counterpart International was once again trusted with USAID funding to implement the Civil Society Local Government Support Program (CSLGSP), which aims to increase the level of informed and effective civic activism at the local and national levels, along with more participatory, decentralized, efficient and responsive local governance that supports the democratic process.
