Building Sustainable Livelihoods in Tavush
Tavush has always been one of the most productive regions of Armenia in terms of agriculture. However, the country’s difficult transition to free market economy, geographical remoteness, poor roads and infrastructure severely affected the area’s agricultural development, resulting in widespread poverty.
The Micro Enterprise Development (MED) program started in 1996 as a part of World Vision’s sustainable development approach to create job opportunities for the poor in Armenia.
Throughout the centuries Armenia withstood the hardships caused by constant wars but could maintain Christian identity, and preserve its truly Christian traditions and culture.
Emergency response, Disaster Mitigation and Gifts-in-kind
Poverty in Armenia has various faces. For many people it is not just lack of daily bread. Due to extremely low salaries and high inflation rates thousands of families in Armenia live in need of basic commodities – clothes, shoes, hygiene items, as well as toys and school supplies.
Medical Outreach Teams (MOTs) – completed project
One of the main challenges of hard-to-reach communities in Armenia is a very limited access to health care. Health posts, often just a room without the necessary equipment, medicine and even staff, fail to provide adequate medical services to the population from remote areas of the country.
HIV and AIDS Prevention
Economic and social insecurity, unemployment, labour migration to the countries with higher rates of HIV combined with insufficient knowledge on HIV, its transmission modes and prevention contribute to the spread of HIV in Armenia. Statistics show an alarming tendency of growth in the number of HIV and AIDS cases, which makes the epidemic a real danger for such a small country.
Maternal and Child Health and Nutrition (MCHN)
According to the Demographic and Health Survey in 2005, 13% of children under five in Armenia suffer from chronic malnutrition, and up to 38% of children in rural areas have anemia as a result of poor nutrition and an insufficiency of macronutrients in their diet.
