Young, educated and unemployed

Within the EU4Youth initiative, funded by the European Union, Save the Children International Armenian Representative Office and World Vision Armenia conducted three assessments of Armenia’s labour market. The findings of these research reports were presented during the event organized on the 27th of March.
The assessments particularly analyze the youth employment in Armenia from three following angles:
• The roles and prospects of young girls and boys in Armenia’s labour market,
• The obstacles of the Armenian youth on the way to labour market,
• Agriculture – available still not-desired sector to work in for Armenia’s youth.

Always Prove That You Can

Hripsime is 35 and she lives with her mum who was trying to take care of her throughout her life, and sometimes this care was too much for a young girl.
From her young ages Hripseme’s dream was to become a modeler, design extraordinary dresses and accessories and inspire people. Because of her poor eyesight her mother thought that sewing and dressmaking could harm her health. “Every time I wanted to sew a new dress or a tie, my mum was trying to prevent it and added that I should take care of myself”.
