“Zartonk89” NGO is continuing the program “Providing Education for 150 children in Armenia” in different regions of Armenia, where this important and targeted plan has not been done yet. We are representing our success in Vayk, which is situated in Vayots -Dzor region. 22 teenagers have taken part in this project, of which 15 girls and 7 boys, who were left out from the opportunity to receive basic education because of difficult social problems and lack some knowledge for their peers. The program “Providing Education for 150 children in Armenia” is for those, who are considered risky group, that is some of them did not attend schools as they had to do hard work because of poor social conditions and they did not have enough basic education. Those problems affected the stereotypes of the following children of risky group, their psychology was changed and they became more self-contained, underestimated their personal skills and became disappointed. Those things psychologically affect our beneficiaries, who become isolated from both their environment and peers. That is why along with basic education the children are supplied with psychological services that help them to be integrated into the learning process making children more motivated and versed.
Volunteers of "Zartonk-89” have left for program implementation place, Vayots- Dzor region, met with training participants and recommended to write a story about the training. Here is Gayane's story.
Hello, I am Gayane. I am 14, from Vayk community of Vayots- Dzor region.
I was selected to participate in “Providing Education for 150 children in Armenia” program. I had attended the High School of Vayk, but then I could not continue my education, receive the needful basic education necessary to a person for interaction in the environment, have indispensable knowledge because of my social conditions. I am very happy that I was given the opportunity to participate “Providing Education for 150 children in Armenia” program in Vayk.
At the program available trainings were organized through games. The material was provided easily. That's the reason that program participants took participation in the training with great interest, without being absent from classes, highlighting the role of basic education in their lives. The training gave me new knowledge, I became more spirited and sociable, acquired new friends. The learning process was goodly organized through games, which made the learning process more interesting. First of all, I met many good and kind people. Everything was very interesting, especially the organization of the training games and classes in the nature.
The used learning methods were very interesting, especially the fact that we also were participating in the training presenting additional information. I would like that such training programs be more, those would include new beneficiaries, and new teenagers would take advantage of educational programs. First of all, I want to thank the program supporters, Global Giving team, and the organizers for implementing such an interesting and training program.
