Help Children in Armenia
Progress has been made to help children in Armenia. The Armenian government is now working to protect children’s rights under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, but not every child in the country has benefited from the progress and there is still a lot that needs to be done.
Poverty is causing many of the children in Armenia to miss out on protection, education, and healthcare. Six percent of school age children aren’t in school. Thirteen of every 1,000 children will die before their fifth birthday and 9 percent of children are engaged in child labor. About 32 percent of people are living in poverty and these children are living in houses without normal living conditions, such as a fridge or a way to heat water.
Efforts to help children in Armenia have been done to build a society in which every child will have the right to development, participation, survival, and protection.
