The progress of the program in Yerevan:

Dear Donors,

Thanks to your donations. We are continuing to support school-aged children living in rural communities of Armenia.

In remote communities of Armenia, people live in extreme poverty. Expending great effort, families try to make a living and earn their daily bread. All of this has a negative impact on children living in these families, as they often have to help their parents with their tasks and usually end up skipping school in the process. In order to prevent this and motivate these children to continue their education, we provide them with psychosocial support.

Our team and the pre-selected pedagogical staff regularly organize informal meetings with students, during which the beneficiaries are provided with the necessary school-based knowledge and life skills.
Here are the results of our meeting with them, the participants' impressions, and the progress of the program.
This meeting was focused on Armenia itself. During the individual work portion, participants were given a map of Armenia and asked to mark their favorite city or region. This gives us the opportunity to listen to the beneficiaries and understand why each person designates a specific place as their favorite in the country. The children excitedly presented their work and gained knowledge.
During the teamwork portion, participants were instructed to describe Armenian schools. They were asked to draw on a poster everything that reminded them of their community schools.

Dear Donors,

We would like to present to you the story of one of our beneficiaries, Shamiram.
"Hello, I'm Shamiram. I'm 13 years old and in the 8th grade. I dream of becoming a designer. I love my school and my friends and I often meet with them, where we sing, dance, and recite poetry. I like to study foreign languages, especially English and Russian. In my free time, I read books and I help my mom. I also love participating in sports. I believe our youth are enthusiastic and diligent. Remember that each of your gestures is very important to us because we live with a great hope for a bright future. We will build new communities. They are waiting for you. Thank you for your generosity."
