40 percent of children live in poverty in Armenia, Mira Antonyan, head
of Child Protection Network, told reporters in Yerevan, presenting the
results and future plans of the organization's activities.

Child Protection Network includes more than a dozen NGOs that have
rich experience in child protection, she noted.

`We aim to help children that face difficult situations. We must also
support families, do our utmost for children to live in full-fledged
families,' Mrs Antonyan said, adding that first of all, state control
is needed in this field.

Child Protection Network cooperates with ChildPact Regional Black Sea
Coalition for the Protection of Children, which unites more than 500
child protection organizations from 8 countries. Thus, the Network
aims to influence decisions of EU and other global players, exchange
experience as well as raise existing problems at regional level, she
concluded.
