On December 20, we celebrated the 10th Anniversary of Public Information and Need of Knowledge (Pink Armenia) NGO.
At the event, we had 10 tables, on which, according to years, Pink’s activity was presented, the 10-year journey passed.
During the birthday reception, we held a fundraiser for Pink, and gifts were prepared for those who donated; posters, books, “Like you” magazine issues, pendants, “Listen to Me” DVDs.
