JA Armenia’s Aflatoun program
Junior Achievement in Armenia has pre-piloted the programme in 2010. This year the organization decided to pre-pilot the programme again with 120 children.
During the activities that took place between October and will last until December 2011 a special activity was done by the children.
In one school in Yerevan, 23 students with the help of a teacher, Hasmik Simonyan, collected toys, books, clothes in the school and organized a visit to an orphanage on October 5th. Both the children of the orphanage and the school students had fun and enjoyed their time together.
Now these students have launched “ Toys and Books Drive” which will run from November 30 to December 21 aiming to support charities for underprivileged children.
They encourage everybody at their school to reach out for children in need and give them a reason to celebrate the festive season and make their New Year celebrations bright and memorable.
Another school that is implementing the Aflatoun programme applied to the Director of their school with a request to implement Inclusive Education Program at their school and create the best environment for physically disabled students. Now the school Board of Education decided to embrace Inclusive Education Program in the school curriculum.
These are great developments in the Armenian programme and the partner will keep on trying to mobilize the necessary resources to make sure the programme can keep on being implemented by the teachers.
