Assist in our project in order each working child receives basic education in local community.
“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:
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.
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.
Now we have 10 beneficiaries, with whom we implement the following activities:
o Meet with employers, inform them about child working rights, protect their interests to employers,
o Give the beneficiaries knowledge about their working rights
o Provide psychological services
Now our beneficiaries have progress, they get in touch with each other, they are self confident, and they protect their rights themselves to employers.
