A writer and journalist, Maria has over a decade of experience reporting the news from Armenia. She was Associate Editor of the Armenian Reporter, Managing Editor at CivilNet, lectures at the American University of Armenia and is the Editor-in-Chief of EVN Report.
EVN Report discusses the policy of deinstitutionalizing orphanages and providing care for children with disabilities within the context of their right to family life with Deputy Minister of Labor and Social Affairs Zhanna Andreasyan.
