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.

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.

“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.
