Project Overview

Care for Children initiated a strategic partnership with the Armenian government in July 2023, having conducted an initial visit in January earlier that year.

Why we work in Armenia

In Armenia, there are an estimated 3,000 children living in government-run care institutions. Further afield, across the Middle East, the precise number of children living in institutional care is unknown due to challenges with record keeping or inconsistencies in data, however UNICEF estimates this figure is at least 212,000.

What we do

Care for Children is working in partnership with the Armenian government's Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs during an initial pilot project stage. As part of this pilot stage, Care for Children will support the country's transition to family-based care for orphans and vulnerable children through consultancy, training workshops, and annual family placement conferences. Care for Children also hopes that this work will open up new opportunities with governments across the wider region, including the Middle East.
