UNICEF Urges Diaspora to Support Armenian Children

The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Armenia Country Office Representative Tania Radochai said today that the problem of future wellbeing of children in Armenia can be solved with involvement of migrant workers and Armenian Diaspora.

Tania Radochai talked about it during “Innovative Approaches to Diaspora Engagement and Use of Remittances for Child Wellbeing in Armenia” conference in Yerevan, reports Mediamax.am.

“We believe that the best contribution for the country is ensuring the well-being of children, as well as in terms of developing the potential of the nation. If the development does not ensure the participation of children, if many children are living below the poverty line level, it continues to be a source of social instability”, said Tania Radochai.

According to her, although Diaspora and Armenian migrant workers have their own urgent priorities and decide how and where to invest in, however, they can be united around the idea of child wellbeing of Armenia.

“Although a large amount of migrant remittances help their families in poverty, however, more can be done to help migrant families in the future and to ensure the long-term perspective of their children. Only then will the next generation of workers not feel the need to go abroad and have low-paid jobs”, noticed Tania Radochai.

United Nations Children’s Fund conducted the EU -funded program called “Social Response to Work Migration”: international experts were invited to Armenia within that program to help Armenia study the experience of other countries that have diasporas.
