Games For Good Artsakh Relief Effort



In light of the recent influx of displaced individuals from Artsakh, we have launched free-of-charge recurring activities for displaced boys and girls in several cities throughout Armenia. Children often carry the heavy burden of trauma, much like a backpack filled with their past experiences and struggles. Our mission is to provide them with safe, nurturing spaces where they can temporarily set aside these burdens and step onto the playing field. Here, they have the opportunity to play, prioritize their health, and acquire essential coping mechanisms and life skills to address their trauma.

Join us today, and support our efforts of ensuring our kids have a safe place to disconnect from the ugly reality that is forced upon them.

We are working with a number of sports schools and facilities across Armenia. They are ready to provide after-school programming for children from Artsakh free of charge. Most of them lack the sports gear necessary to do so. With your donations and support we will be providing them with basketballs, footballs, and other sport essentials to be able to conduct these activities.

Your contributions directly aid in securing sports gear and orchestrating events for children who have found themselves relocated to rural Armenian communities due to displacement.

The Need
“Games For Good” serves a critical need by providing a sense of normalcy and well-being to children displaced from Artsakh. These young individuals have faced the upheaval of conflict and are in need of stability and integration into their new surroundings. Sports and purposeful play offer a unique avenue for achieving this. Not only do these activities promote physical well-being, but they also provide a sense of routine and belonging. The project recognizes the importance of creating a safe and inclusive space where displaced children can engage in sports, learn life skills, and forge new friendships. In this context, sports play a vital role in supporting their emotional and psychological well-being, enabling these children to recover from the traumas of displacement and integrate more smoothly into their new communities.
Short Term Impact

GOALS will provide free-of-charge recurring activities for displaced boys and girls in several cities throughout Armenia.

Long Term Impact
Research shows that sports can help mitigate the effects of forced displacement on children. Participating in team sports yields psychological, physical, emotional, social, educational, and long-term benefits. These include improved concentration and physical fitness, social integration, conflict resolution skills, reduction in anxiety and depression, and increased motivation to attend school.
Sponsors Benefits
Sponsors will be listed on The Paros Foundation website, on the GOALS website, and in all relevant press of this important project.
