Progress Report

We present child labor problem that there is in the world. These children cannot receive education because of mentioned problem; they work in small age, and do heavy works to earn their living. They are exploited as they don’t know about their labor rights.

We present you attention the importance of this problem solution.

During the implementation of “Providing education for 90 children in Armenia” project the results are:

  1. 12-14 years old 20 working children have came back to school. They receive qualified basic education and specialization.
  2.  Works are being done with 14-16 years old 22 teenagers as they can get basic education, obtain knowledge on their labor rights for reduction of labor exploitation.
  3. We have made arrangement with “Mkhitar Sebastatsi” educational complex in order to help working children do easy works (books digitization, collecting materials and other works) at school.

This success inspires us in order to implement this project more effectively.

Join our project, your donation will help our beneficiaries who are in bad social condition to get knowledge and specialization skills for providing their further life and living better.

“Providing education for 90 children in Armenia” is aimed at helping labor children to obtain qualitative knowledge and get a profession.

Within the framework of the project our organization has provided benefiters the following services:

  1. Basic Education
  2. Professional education
  3. Psychological support
  4. Legal Advice

As a result of the services that we have provided our benefiters have obtained basic knowledge, professional skills. Due to this many of them work in the profession and have got social stability. Psychological support and legal advice have also been very important for labor children. It helps our benefiters to get integrated in society, communicate with their peers and feel more protected. While caring out our project we have made progress: 30 per cent of the children have returned to their schools to proceed education, and others have obtained skills and now work in the profession.

Cooperating with educational complex of Mkhitar Sebastaci we’ve managed to provide 10 labor children with school activities. They do some easy jobs in the library, in the computer center and in the canteen.

The donation allotted by our donors has been aimed at granting basic education and obtaining professional skills by labor children.

Provide non formal education to the beneficiaries
Provide non formal education to the beneficiaries

We implement “Providing education for 90 children in Armenia” project with very scarce resources, which give us an opportunity to make contribution for the improvement of working children’s education. We can provide them psychological and legal assistance with the help of volunteers work. We meet with employers; reveal children’s working hours, type of work and employment. In the result they have obtained knowledge on social sustainability and integrated in society. During the implementation of our project we have had progress, helped the children return to school and continue their education, provided them with formal and non formal education, and protected their rights on labor abuse, they work illegal and not registered as an employers.  Based on this problem the organization has worked out a new project which will be ongoing. Amounts received from GlobalGiving are mainly directed to our beneficiaries’ education and stationery.
