Scholarship for a Sustainable Future: Aida V.
Nor Luyce works with young girls, ages 14-17, from two local orphanages and/or from poverty stricken families from Gyumri, Armenia. Under the direction of their Executive Director, Shoghik Mikayelyan, the program provides their mentees with positive roles models and emotional support. The reduction of isolation is provided by mentors and by field trips, which expose the children to various work and educational settings. In addition, Nor Luyce’s program emphasizes the development of educational and career plans. They are now at the stage of either beginning or continuing to help implement each older child’s plan for higher education. Each child has also either completed or is in the process of completing a career plan, which includes the most appropriate type and place of higher education.
Nor Luyce is trying to provide Aida V., with a scholarship that would reduce her out of pocket cost towards her education. Aida was born in Hatsik village in Armenia. Her family consists of five people, her father, mother, brother, grandparent and her. Aida’s father works in agriculture. Her mother works at the school. Aida’s brother participated in the 44-day war with Azerbaijan during which he was wounded. Currently he is still serving in the army at the border.
Aida is studying in the Armenian-English translation department at the Shirak State University. She is in her first year. Aida joined Nor Luyce in 2018. At that time she lacked self-confidence and had low self-esteem. However, she has successfully completed all her phases at Nor Luyce and is a Nor Luyce alum. Thanks to Nor Luyce, Aida has become self-confident, can express her opinion easily and she has developed leadership skills. All these years, Aida has been one of the best mentees, participated in all the meetings and events. Currently she volunteers at Nor Luyce helping the staff in different activities. She also gave a number of presentations on bullying at various communities in the Shirak Region.
Currently, Aida needs our support in getting her degree because her family is socially vulnerable. The requested scholarship funds will help Naira continue her studies and cover the costs of her tuition, books, stationaries, and her transportation fee.
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
