Project: Support for the Yerevan Children's Home (In Progress)

Project Name Support for the Yerevan Children's Home
Full Description

The Nork Orphanage houses approximately 60 infants and toddlers, from newborns to six years of age. They are also home to children with different types of disabilities. The facility is located in the Nork area of Yerevan approximately 15 minutes from the city center.

Along with our generous donors, we constructed a small play area for the children called Ari's Playground in 2012. They now have a safe environment in which they can play and interact with one another, with staff, and with perspective adoptive parents. In addition, the children are frequently taken out of the orphanage on excursions to the zoo and park through our Orphan Excursion project.

Sponsorship of this project will help fund several excursions and activities, as well as help tend to facility and maintenance issues that effect the well being of the children.

Need Approximately 1,200 children live in Armenia's 15 orphanages. While these facilities provide basic care for these children, their limited funding does not always allow for extracurricular activities such as arts & crafts, and excursions to amusement parks and concerts. Also, additional funds are always needed to help obtain medical equipment vital to the children's' health.
