Perkins in Armenia
Shaping systemic change in Armenia
In Armenia, Perkins partners with government, educators and families to create an environment where children with complex disabilities and vision impairments can learn and thrive.
In many countries in the world, children with complex disabilities and visual impairments are deprived from receiving quality education. In Armenia, they are also more likely to grow up in an orphanage.
Perkins in Armenia partners with global and local networks of schools, orphanages, hospitals, universities, and governments – creating systemic change by modeling best practices, bringing education to children wherever they are, and transforming institutions.
Discover how we are transforming education in Armenia.
We meet children wherever they are and create an environment where they can learn and thrive – at home, in an orphanage, at schools or in community programs.
Our tailored training programs support educators with the skills and knowledge they need to address the educational needs of children with complex disabilities and visual impairments.
Perkins in Armenia creates partnerships at all levels of the education system – with schools, families, government, NGO’s, orphanages, community based programs, university, and support centers for inclusion.
This best practice allows us to create change at a country level and transforms a highly institutionalized country into an inclusive society that makes education accessible for all.
