Run for Education supports the “Teach for Armenia” Foundation.
Since September 19, 2023, over 100,000 people, including 30,000 children, have been forcibly displaced from Artsakh (also known as Nagorno-Karabakh). For nearly a year, they endured a blockade that harmed their health and disrupted their education.
Leveraging experience from our emergency response to the 2020 Artsakh war, Teach For Armenia has formed a coalition of organizations to coordinate wraparound support for displaced students. Over the next year, we will work with the Armenian government to position public schools as community centers where community-based organizations can orchestrate carefully coordinated services, including education, nutrition, health, housing, and psychosocial support.
