In late 2015, World Vision launched Every Last One (ELO) — a $1 billion capital campaign over eight years to make life, hope, and a future possible for 60 million people. Explore the work that has already been done, and help us make an even bigger impact faster.
Why World Vision is in Armenia
We never give up on people
World Vision child sponsorship looks at all the things that prevent children from surviving and thriving in their community, and then works with that community to bring all the pieces of the puzzle together to build a better life for all children. For sponsors, it’s a personal way to show God’s love to a child in need in a life-changing way.
Progress in Armenia
Thanks to the generous support of donors, we’re making great progress toward the well-being of children and their families.
Child Protection and Care
Boys and girls are safe and valued, well cared for by their families, and participating in their communities as agents of transformation.
- Parents attended trainings on positive discipline strategies, which gave them tools to care for their children in a healthy and productive way.
Healthy Children and Families
Children and families are well nourished, protected from infection and disease, and have access to essential health services.
- World Vision helped educate communities about the importance of hand washing and social distancing to protect against COVID-19.
- World Vision supported over 1,000 households with food assistance.
Education for Better Lives
Children have opportunities to learn and to develop their talents, young people are equipped for the future, and families and communities support children's education.
- Parents and caregivers were trained on early education strategies and the importance of fostering learning at home.
- Over 2,000 students took part in life skills trainings. The trainings were designed to teach children about healthy relationships, caring for their community, and caring for themselves and others.
Prayer Requests from Armenia
World Vision's staff in Armenia are asking us to join them in prayer for the following:
For a peaceful resolution to the current situation at the Armenian-Azerbaijan border that’s causing instability and tense political situations.
For the children and families who fled their homes without any possessions due to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, and who now have no place to live and no jobs to earn a living in Armenia.
