Background:

For several years, Mission East together with its local partner Bridge of Hope have worked to improve inclusive education in Armenia by giving children with disabilities and special educational needs access to quality education on an equal basis with other children. The improved model is currently being implemented in the poor Tavush region at the border with Azerbaijan through a Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs supported project ”Living Together, Learning Together: A Child’s Right To Community-Based IE, in Tavush”. Work is well under way, and Mission East just needed the very last funds to complete the efforts in the region and implement the model in the capital Yerevan and other regions in Armenia. This project gathers this final needed funding from several Danish private foundations. It complements Mission East running inclusive education project: ”Living Together” by assisting the last 20 Tavush schools with staff training and resource rooms being adapted.

Project Status: 
Running
Project Background: 

Background:

This 24-months project aims to strengthen the right of children with disability to quality inclusive education in Armenia. The project builds on the remarkable results achieved by local partner Bridge of Hope with the support of Mission East during a first phase of a Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs funded programme: “Living Together, Learning Together: A Child’s Right To Community-Based Inclusive Education in Tavush”, from 2009 to 2011. It also builds on the results from the running inclusive education project supported by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs: “Living Together, Learning Together: A Child’s Right To Community-Based Inclusive Education, consolidating earlier results in Tavush. Both projects laid the groundwork for the model of a comprehensive approach to inclusive education, which can be expanded from the regional level to the national level in the future. But in order to replicate this model nationally – providing a universal inclusive education system in Armenia - there is a need to replicate and adjust the model for the specific urban context of the capital city, Yerevan. The latter is done in this project.
