Help Save Children in Armenia
Much progress has been made to help Armenian children survive and thrive. The Armenian government is now actively working to protect children's rights under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Unfortunately, not every child in Armenia has benefited from the country’s progress. Children living in poverty still lack access to healthcare, social services and quality education.
The Challenges for Children in Armenia
Poverty is causing many of Armenia’s children to miss out on healthcare, protection and education. They need your help.*
- 9% of school-age children are out of school
- 14 out of 1000 children die before their 5th birthday
- 4% of children are engaged in child labor
- 32% of people live in poverty
Our Work for Children in Armenia
Save the Children has been working to help children in Armenia since 1993. Our efforts aim to build a society in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation. Strengthening state institutions and mechanisms for the implementation and monitoring of child's rights; advocating for reforms to prevent, identify and address child rights and protection concerns; and increasing awareness and capacity children and civil society actors to push realization of children's rights and their participation in decision making processes.
In the past two decades Save the Children has delivered more than $50 million in relief and development programs to the most vulnerable children and their families. The vital health, education and social initiatives have helped improve the living conditions of the poorest populations through community-based projects. Save the Children has also actively collaborated with central and local government bodies, international and national non-governmental organizations and agencies to protect children's rights under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
