100 Villages facts
Volunteers living in Armenia are donating their time to help Aid to Armenia conduct trainings (all volunteers are certified in CPR and First Aid training). Training will be open to villagers living in rural Armenian communities. To assist with village contacts AtA has partnered with many local organizations, including but not limited to; World Vision, Children of Armenia Fund, Homeland Development Initiative Foundation, and the Foundation for Preservation of Wildlife and Cultural Assets.
AtA will provide 100 village trainings. Each village training consists of a two-hour hands on basic first aid course. The topics covered in the course will include; bleeding control, splinting for broken bones and joint injures, care for bites and stings, care for victims in shock, seizures, strokes, and choking emergencies. Aid to Armenia will bring CPR mannequins and first aid supplies to the village training in order to provide each participant with hands on training. Each participant will be given a first aid reference guide (printed in Armenian language based on American Red Cross guidelines) and a small sterile first aid kit for them to keep in their home, a larger first aid kit will be donated to each village health post.
Aid to Armenia will travel to rural Armenian villages to provide the training. Trainings are usually conducted in the village health post or in a classroom at the local school.
In a one year period from April 24th, 2015 to April 24th 2016
This is where you come in! We need your financial support to complete the trainings and provide first aid supplies to all 100 villages in the next year. Aid to Armenia is completely supported by volunteers so you can rest assured knowing that every dollar you donate to AtA is going directly to Armenian villagers.
