School Kits for Children in Armenia

13:50 Sep 19 2013 Armenia

Description
The recent economic downturn has been extremely detrimental to families that were already impoverished and vulnerable. School supplies are too expensive for these families, and as a result, many children do not attend school. This is especially problematic since, according to UNICEF, approximately 26% of children in Armenia are in poverty.

School Kits will enable more children to attend school and allow their families to spend their money on other basic needs.
