Creating lasting change for children in need in Armenia and around the world.
Save the Children's mission is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.
Save the Children is the world's largest independent movement for children's rights, with a network of 29 national organisations working in over 120 countries.
Since its establishment in Armenia in 1993, Save the Children implemented more than 900 projects to the benefit of around 500 communities in Armenia. While programs and project were different in nature, scope and sector, our core approach has ensured community buy-in and participation along with involvement of central and local government which in turn guaranteed long-term solutions.
Child Protection Programs of Save the Children in Armenia work towards improved policies, systems and services for vulnerable children in order to protect their rights under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The focus of Save the Children’s Child Protection approach is to establish a national framework for protecting children against violence, with corresponding local mechanisms and capacities to respond to child protection threats in the families, institutions, communities and other settings, including children from refugee families. Besides working with various structures, child protection activities of Save the Children are ensuring empowerment of a) communities to create an environment protecting all vulnerable children from all forms of violence, and b) children to increase the level of their participation in making decisions that affect their lives.
Save the Children is committed to improving access, quality and sustainability of pre-school services for children. To that end, we have been ensuring renovation and furnishing of pre-school infrastructures, training of teachers and nurses, and working with local authorities and pre-school management teams to develop long-term sustainability solutions. All these activities have been carried out under a capacity building, participatory and local resources mobilization umbrella and ensured promotion of high level involvement of all stakeholders including kindergar
