AMAA-Armenia and Teach for Armenia Cooperate to Reach Out to Children of Kirants Community of Tavush Marz
In 2014, on the eve of the Centennial of the Armenian Genocide, a Consortium was formed between six organizations to reach out to the children of the Martuni Community in the Chambarak Region. The Consortium has now expanded to eleven organizations to include The Armenian Missionary Association of America-Armenia (AMAA-Armenia), “Shen” Charity NGO, Children of Armenia Fund (COAF), “Development Principles” NGO, Fund for Armenian Relief, World Vision Armenia, Teach for Armenia (TA), World Council of Churches Armenia Round Table Foundation, Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU), “Armenian Caritas” Benevolent NGO and “Diaconia Charitable Fund.”
In the first phase of the Consortium and in cooperation with Teach For Armenia, AMAA-Armenia sponsored a well-trained teacher to teach IT courses in the Martuni community of Chambarak Region for two years, both at the school level and at extracurricular and community level programs.
On July 26, 2019, the two Consortium member organizations solemnly signed their agreement to cooperate in the Kirants Community of Tavush Province, where AMAA-Armenia and TA will implement this program in the Primary School of the Community and will actively initiate community development and impact programs.
