Baggrund:

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.

Aktiviteter:

Activities include: Conducting a needs assessment at 20 inclusive schools in Noyemberyan after which the ten most dilapidated schools resource rooms will be renovated and furnished. 44 teachers and special educators will be trained in inclusive and interactive teaching methods adapted to children with disabilities and special needs. Approximately 480 parents of children with disabilities and learning difficulties receive training concerning child development, disability and parenthood. Finally, a total of more than 400 children with disabilities, special needs and from marginalized families get the opportunity to play and participate in recreational activities, as part of the project’s focus on inclusion in the local area.
