Zartonok-89 NGO

Your contribution to our achievements:

Dear donors, our partners, it's our pleasure to inform you that Zartonk-89 NGO has been awarded as TOP-RANKED and VETTED organization of 2016 by GlobalGiving as a sign of gratitude and our hard work. Our team highly appreciates this special gesture and wishes to share the success, achievements, and results that we recorded in this project. 
The main purpose of the project is to support the vulnerable and working children of the remote marzes of the Republic of Armenia to acquire basic education by using our specially designed course plan, also create free and unconstrained environment where children can communicate with their peers, acquire new friends and fully integrate into the society.
In the distant marzes of the Republic of Armenia being in vulnerable condition, children do manual hard work in their communities and villages, and as a result, they miss the opportunity of acquiring basic education which is a very important factor in the process of exploration and development of children's intellectual abilities. They become unconfident, self-contained, depressed, they don't get motivated to acquire knowledge which is essential for the rest of their lives.     
Dear donors, your donations were directed in the implementation of providing basic knowledge to our target group of children.
Our regional representatives conducted courses in their communities using non-formal educational methodology through interactive games.
Children were participating in the educational section with great enthusiasm and were asking questions about topics which greatly interested them.
In order to make the course more interactive, our specialists used presentations which gave more descriptive explanation to each topic.
This time the beneficiaries had opportunities to get basic knowledge about technological and digital means and to explore the modern information technologies, and by selecting as a tool the required information about different spheres, such as mathematics, physics, geography, history, etc. As a result, our target group reached to the conviction that one can get knowledge also from the internet. They were promised to learn foreign languages in the nearest future, so they can get knowledge also from various foreign literature.
By analyzing and examining our beneficiaries upcoming steps, their disposition of this program, their enthusiasm and expectations, we came to conclusion that in the future stages of the implementation of the project positive trends would be registered in distant communities, the number of participants will increase in our target group and in the nearest future we hope that the project will spread in all the villages and communities of all the distant marzes of the Republic of Armenia. We appreciate your support and your donations which got directed to the process of implementation of these essential steps.

Hello, I am Zempira. I love in Arapi community. From this course, I acquired knowledge which gives me power and motivation. I liked when our trainers taught us the basic computer and internet skills, how to search for books and information about the spheres we are interested. During my free time, I like drawing and sewing. I hope that the acquired knowledge will help me to become the best specialist in the field which I'll choose.
