16 July 2010

People in the regions are less aware of child trafficking than people in Yerevan, revealed research on child trafficking in Armenia. Poverty and low levels of education may raise the possibility of child trafficking in the country, according to experts who conducted child trafficking research in Armenia. “Children must be armed with skills, which will help them protect themselves,” said Mira Antonyan, the President of “Harmonic Society”, an Armenian association of social workers. The results of the research, which aimed at studying the level of awareness of child trafficking among the Armenian public, were presented at the EU Delegation to Armenia on 30 March. The programme was implemented by “People in Need” Czech NGO’s local partner “Hope and Help” and was funded by the EU.
