Ghoghanj: Project Tech Support

Description

Maroush Dekermenjian has adopted this project and helped raise the funds needed with the help of her family and friends in honor of her birthday.

The mission of the Ghoghanj Children’s Center is to provide the proper support and guidance children need to excel in school and become self-confident and respectful young adults. Founded in 2003, the Ghoghanj Children’s Center works with vulnerable “at-risk” children and their families to help them overcome social, psychological and legal issues.

The Center’s programs are specifically designed to facilitate group discussion and are sensitive to the psychological challenges of an at-risk child and their families. The Center works to develop successful communication, self-expression and tolerance skills among the students. A fundamental focus on the arts, homework assistance and tutoring to ensure academic success is a key ingredient of the programs’ success.

Since its inception, the Ghoghanj Children’s Center has been continuously attempting to expose it’s students to new and developing academic opportunities. The existing computer and Internet course at Ghoghanj provide these opportunities and need funding to continue. The continuation of these courses will provide 75 at-risk students with three levels of classes progressing from proper computer usage, to Internet use and eventually basic web design. Children at the Center will also gain access to free Internet whether they are enrolled in the courses or not. The goal of this program is to teach their students the proper technological skills essential for a successful future.
