Teach for Armenia: Education in Post-War Artsakh

Teach for Armenia began its operations in Artsakh in 2017. Young teachers from Armenia, Artsakh and the diaspora are trained and then sent to rural communities that are in need of teachers. Lilit Khachatryan, who is a refugee from Artsakh, has been part of the program for a year. She teaches physical education. In these bordering villages, that subject is generally taught by men. Lilit is the first woman to take that job in Khnapat Village in Artsakh. She had to prove to the children that being a woman and a physical education teacher are not mutually exclusive.
