DESCRIPTION

Musical Armenia was founded in 2017, to support youth music education in Armenia. They believe that every child in Armenia should have access to music education, regardless of financial means. Musical Armenia has partnered with The Paros Foundation to help provide tuition scholarships and instruments for underprivileged children. Musical Armenia is solely supported by individual donors.

This project aims to provide full, ongoing music scholarships to 18 children from socially vulnerable families in Vanadzor who attend the Orran Center. The budget includes funds allocated for securing instruments, transportation costs and other related expenses whenever needed.

Students will attend one of three existing music schools in Vanadzor, with full tuition paid. Monthly tuition per child includes 8 private lessons on the instrument, 4 music theory classes, and 4 choir practices (optional). Your contribution of $14 per month ($168 per year) will sponsor one child for the duration of one year. Sponsorship in any amount is welcomed.

THE NEED

18 children from the Orran Center in Vanadzor have been identified who would like to study music, but are unable to pay for tuition due to their family's economic condition.

SHORT TERM IMPACT

18 children will study music in a warm and nurturing environment. This includes learning an instrument, studying music theory, and having the opportunity to sing in the school choir (optional). In addition, the project increases teacher salaries, since teachers are paid per student and the project increases the number of students.

LONG TERM IMPACT

Musical education teaches discipline, helps develop good work ethic, increases self-esteem and empowers children. This project will sponsor 18 children for the duration of their studies (maximum 8 years), making a lasting investment in the child's development. The goal is to inspire, allow the children to explore their talents and reach their full potential. Furthermore, this project has the potential to promote Armenia's rich culture.
