The Armenian Association of Social Workers (AASW) is contributing to the increased resilience of conflict-affected populations in five regions of Armenia (Syunik, Vayots Dzor, Tavush, Kotayk, and Gegharkunik) as well as in Yerevan. The AASW is undertaking this vital work within the framework of "REACT: Relief and Early Recovery for People Affected by Conflict in Armenia" project which is implemented by the PIN and funded by EU humanitarian aid.
This is a story of Mrs. Alvard. She is an inspirational person, one of the beneficiaries of EU ECHO-funded REACT project.
The new three-year Project implemented by the Armenian Association of Social Workers aims to create opportunities for vulnerable families. Today, at least 700,000 people in Armenia live below the upper poverty line and the Project is expected to improve the quality of life of more than 11,000 of them and bring reforms in the practice of social work.
Social workers are the conscience of the society. These professionals “face people”and help them to solve the issues occurred in their lives.
