Time Well Spent


At her home in rural Armenia, Ani spends time each day reading with her four children.

How much time do you spend playing with your kids each day? For many parents around the world, spending daily time with their kids isn’t automatic.

In Armenia, parents who take part in World Vision programs are becoming more engaged in their children’s lives … and the children are responding with better behavior and school performance.

When parents don’t have enough food, any running water, or even a way to warm a house, they’re often not focused on quality time with their kids. But World Vision’s sponsorship programs try to address all of these issues by bringing water where it’s needed, working with parents on new economic opportunities, and teaching parents about the positive impact of time focused on their children.

Ani, a 28-year-old mother of four learned skills from a World Vision child development program.

“Before, I didn’t know how to make simple toys and didn’t spend much time with the children. Now I’m busy with them most of the time, and we go outside so they can play. I know that’s important for them,” Ani says.

World Vision gave the family educational books, including fairy tales and books about animals that she reads with them.
