Project Description

NO POVERTY

According to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), poverty rates in rural areas of Armenia are high (30.4%) as of 2016. Our aim is eliminating poverty in a sustainable way, that is, providing education and opportunities to Armenian youth in rural areas. YES also organizes fundraisings to support individuals who have been accepted to leading universities in Armenia (see university list below) but cannot afford to cover the tuition fee, as well as offering vocational training courses to those who need new skills to become self-sustainable. Thanks to our dedicated donors, we plan to fund several Armenian children annually.
YES also has a number of other events to fight poverty, the most popular one being our annual Christmas Gift Drive, where we gather donations to provide food and warm clothing to children in border villages, and summer fundraising events to provide children and their families with hygiene and school kits.
