Challenge

Persons with disabilities in Armenia are being left behind and subjected to different forms of exclusion and discrimination. They suffer substantial economic disadvantages; their integration into the labor market remains challenging, as the unemployment rate among people with disabilities is high, 92%. This indicates that most of them are either unemployed or discouraged from actively seeking work. Women with disabilities are less likely than men to be employed and earn less for the same jobs.

Solution

The project is designed to build the income-generating knowledge and skills in beekeeping for 30 young men and women with disabilities in Berd region of Tavush Marz in the North-East part of Armenia. Project aims to improve living condition of 30 marginalized group of youth with disabilities in Berd. Through hands-on training and coaching, the youth will learn the basic knowledge competencies essential to start beekeeping business. Project wants to create courageous and confident beekeepers.

Long-Term Impact

30 youth with disabilities will gain sustainable access to livelihoods opportunities. They will overcome their social isolation, earn for their independent living. Along the improvement of their social-economic status youth will become confident and active citizens. Project will act as model for the Marz to increase the livelihoods possibilities for youth with disabilities and ensure diversified income generation activities, access to markets/ potential employers and government benefits.
