The Need
Persons with Disabilities (PWD) in Armenia are mostly excluded from cultural activities. Due to the difficulties accessing cultural centers, concert halls, museums, etc., people with limited mobility, especially wheelchair users rarely have an opportunity to attend a concert or cultural event. In addition, public perceptions of PWD prevent their inclusion in cultural activities.
Short Term Impact
The audiences of the four concerts will be no less than 500 persons. The press conference will secure a wide coverage of the project outcomes, and the media reports will increase the number of people learning about the Choir and its activities to at least 15,000.
Long Term Impact
The success story of the Choir and its performances will encourage PWD to live a full life and will push decision makers to make the cultural facilities accessible. In a longer perspective, the rights of thousands of Armenians with disabilities will be promoted.
Sponsors Benefits
The names of the donors/supporters will be published on,, websites, in addition to The Paros Foundation website and in any appropriate press materials.
