Wages are very low in most sectors, but there is a ton of NGO and volunteer work going on. NGOs have bloomed everywhere – international relief agencies are well represented, and there are many local and diasporan bodies as well, covering everything from health to the environment to teaching. The website www.armeniadiaspora.com is a good place to start investigating.
Most churches are open 9am to 6pm daily, though in winter you might have to wait a while for the key to appear. Government offices and international organisations usually work 9am to 5pm weekdays. Fairs and markets open daily. Museums and galleries often close Monday. Shops are usually open 9am to 7pm, or 10am to 10pm. Bank opening hours vary but are usually 9.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday and 10.30am to 1.30pm Saturday.
Teach English abroad with an i-to-i TEFL Course
If you’ve ever thought about living and working abroad, then why not teach English as a foreign language (TEFL)? It could be the key to funding your travels and experiencing new cultures in a totally new way. You don’t need teaching experience or even the ability to speak the local language – although you might learn it while you’re out there.
