Dear friend,

Recently we have assisted to 35 working children for their education to buy stationery, transport fees, professional teaching materials for them with 1390$. The donation helped 22 children at the age of 12-16 to come back school and continue their education with the same age children and help 13 beneficiaries to get additional education without leaving their job. Your assistance gave 35 children opportunity to get knowledge, have specialization, to know about their working rights and improve their social conditions with the expectation of finding jobs easily on their specialization in future.

In the framework of our project we have a lot of children who are in bad social conditions work at an early age to help their families. They are even ready to do hard works.  

Your donations will help needy children for work abuse prevention, social stability positive changes taking place in their life.

They have had experience on conducting interviews, raising community problems of each participant (clean environment, corruption, environment, healthy lifestyle, unemployment, human rights violation, immigration and so on).

I would like to mention those huge works that the participants of Olympiad have done within the framework of this project, for making the problems more vivid, they made videos, prepared films, created blogs, which became a platform to raise their suggested problems. Online Olympiad program was inspired the students from other regions in Armenia as they didn’t participate such programs before.
