The aim of the project is to assist 12-17 year old 90 children in receiving basic education that are deprived of attending schools and give them psychological help and juridical knowledge.

For achieving the goals of the project we

  1. created an environment, where our beneficiaries (working children) get education with state plane
  2. conduct trainings on working rights and law of infant work in our country
  3. provided psychological assistance which has contributed to 32 working children back to school,     
  4. helped them learn their preferred specialization.

“Providing education for 90 children in Armenia” is ongoing project. We have progress in the implementation of this project. 

In the framework of the project we check out test of knowledge by means of tests 2 times a year. 2 types of tests are made on subject and human rights (work rights). 

In November the volunteers of our organization have made tests on different subjects and working rights for 12 beneficiaries of “Providing education for 90 children in Armenia” project. In the result the beneficiaries knowledge on the subjects have risen by 30% and 50% on working rights.  

We got this index comparing the initial tests results with the answers after the trainings. 

For providing the project process and implementing the works more effective 4 times a year the questionnaires are distributed to our beneficiaries. By means of these questionnaires we inform about their problems and find new solution. We also inform about their suggestions and involve them in the process of project implementation.   

The success of the project is: our beneficiaries get knowledge and specialization that give them chance to be socially sustainable.

Here is a short story about one of the beneficiaries of this project:

I am Samvel Hayrapetyan. I stop to attend to school when I was at 7th form. I have dreamed to learn at school and have good future. When my father died I left the school and began to work in order to help my mother to earn our living. I worked all the day and didn’t earn much money. One day my friend by name of Hayk informed me that he has participated in “Providing education for 90 children in Armenia” project implemented by Zartonk -89 NGO. That project gave him an opportunity to get knowledge and specialization, get in touch with the children at the same age. Listening my friend advice I also involved in this project. Now I am happy to participate in this project. In 5 months I should go to serve in an army. Thanks to this project I have enough knowledge, specialization which I use them in my life.
