DESCRIPTION

Nor Geghi is a village in the Kotayk Province of Armenia, located around 22 km north of the capital Yerevan, near the town of Nor Hachen. The village has a population of about 5,000 residents.

In 2015, The Paros Foundation completed renovations to the restrooms of the village kindergarten. 75 children & the staff now have brand new restrooms available to them. In the recent year, a new & very pro-active principal has taken over and has successfully obtained funding from different outlets in order to renovate the kitchen, and the upstairs classrooms. The kindergarten also houses a large auditorium, which is in need of a complete renovation. The principal hopes to be able to host not only kindergarten concerts and functions in the space as well as make it accessible to the entire village as a community center. The auditorium would be open to the village school to hold their functions as well as residents, the municipality and village guests. Sponsorship of this project will help complete renovations to the auditorium including new flooring, electrical fixtures, paint, new windows, a new door, a new stage, audio/visual technology and new auditorium chairs.

THE NEED

Nor Geghi is one of the larger populated villages in the area. In past years, village schools and residents have not had a proper center in which to showcase their students' hard work and accomplishments. The auditorium housed in the kindergarten would provide them the perfect space in which to hold graduation ceremonies, musical recitals, concerts, seminars and other functions for the entire village.

SHORT TERM IMPACT

In the short term the kindergarten auditorium will be renovated including new flooring, electrical fixtures, paint, new windows, a new door, a new stage, audio/visual technology and new auditorium chairs. Supplies will be purchased locally and locally labor will be used whenever possible, thus providing them with temporary jobs.

LONG TERM IMPACT

In the long term, the completion of this project will provide a proper facility for current and future kindergartners, students, and village residents to hold graduation ceremonies, musical recitals, concerts, seminars and other functions for the entire village.
