In 2015, Arar Foundation initiated a mobilization project for border villagers in the Tavush region. The purpose of the project was to modernize combat capabilities of rural men, as well as keep them alert, ready, and able to serve as support to the Armed Forces in the event of escalation or aggression. Based on the success of the pilot project, the program has been expanded to several more border villages in Tavush and included in the national program. The feedback was very positive both from the Army personnel and from those who participated in the trainings. This model of potential consolidation and modernization of the Reserve Forces was fully justified during the hostilities of April 2016. Within the framework of this program and in collaboration with local authorities, Arar Foundation also established a trained military female unit in one of the villages in Tavush.
