DESCRIPTION OF CHILD DEVELOPMENT DIRECTIONS

World Vision’s projects are targeted at development of children of 0-5, 6-14, and 14+ age groups. Development models have been elaborated for each age group brief description whereof is presented below.

TECHNICAL PROGRAM 1 – EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT (0-5 AGE GROUP)

TECHNICAL PROGRAM 1 –  Early Childhood Development (0-5 AGE GROUP)

Go, baby, go! /2 months/ - 20 parents-

World Vision organizes a series of “Go, baby, go!” parenting training for parents of children under 3 years of age residing in its program communities which addresses important issues such as proper nutrition, care and basics of positive parenting excluding corporal or psychological punishment of children.

Supportive Supervision /6 months/

Temporary deployment of the best national experts in healthcare and pre-school facilities of the communities aimed at transfer of best practice. As a result of monitoring experts present to the facility a package of recommendations on improving services based on national standards. Six months later a follow-up visit is paid to assess performance of recommendations. This model helps to improve the quality of community services which has a direct impact on community children’s well-being and development.  

Parenting Schools /6 months/ - 20 parents -.

Parents’ education comprises the significant part of World Vision’s projects. To this end about 80 mothers’ and parents’ schools have been established within healthcare facilities. Through training pregnant women and mothers learn:

-   prenatal and postnatal care,

-   child care,

-   cooking healthy and age-specific food,

-   proper child development and leisure time with children through games..

Caring for Equality /12 months/ - 20 parents

In the framework of this model World Vision Armenia supports implementation of the policy against gender-based violence and sex-selective abortions at the national level. At the community level we promote fathers’ participation in the upbringing and development of children and contribute to creation of such an environment where girls and boys are born and valued equally. Both parents and caregivers, as well as community youth participate in the trainings.

Preschool Standards /3 months/ - 20 adults –

This series of trainings for preschool staff and parents raises their awareness of selected standards of preschool education. The standards are selected as a result of evaluation jointly with experts and supervising bodies of delegated service providing institutions, which refer to variety and quality of food for children, furnishing and lighting of rooms as well as materials and entertainment items.

TECHNICAL PROGRAM 2– CHILD PROTECTION (6-14 AGE GROUP)

TECHNICAL PROGRAM 2– CHILD PROTECTION /6-14 AGE GROUP/

Online security of children /4 months/ -20 children –

Internet - accessible almost to everybody - together with its positive aspects can also pose a great threat to children because it is full of aggressive, sexually explicit information as well as materials having a negative impact on the formation of children’s value system. Risks are numerous and in order to minimize them World Vision Armenia, jointly with the National Center of Educational Technologies, has developed a program aimed at raising children’s, parents’ and teachers’ awareness of online security.

Debate Clubs /4 months/ -15 children –

Debate clubs enable children and young people to freely express their thoughts, build a good speech, be able to debate by managing their emotions and make the debate more constructive. These skills are extremely important for children regardless of their future profession. With the purpose of learning the art of debate and developing their critical thinking children acquire theoretical knowledge and participate in inter-school and national debate games.

Peace Road /6 months/ -20 children –

Through these trainings children learn to make decisions without causing harm to others and without manifestations of discrimination, and to overcome conflicts peacefully. In the framework of the model importance of preventing violent behavior among peers is particularly highlighted.

End Violence /1 month/ - 20 children/parents –

The child must understand when his/her or their friend’s rights are violated. The same refers also to the parent. Thanks to this training both children and their parents understand what violation of child rights means, what to do in such cases, and what kind of response mechanisms are in place. The training is conducted in schools.

Disaster and Risk Reduction Training in Schools – 1 school –

In the framework of the model children must have a clear understanding of how to act during various disasters. Introduction to evacuation plan is part of the training; relevant drills are practiced as well.

Summer Camp – 9-13 age group /7 days/

This training is designed for the youth with the purpose of supporting them with career guidance taking into consideration pecualiarities of the labor market.
