Hatsik School Auditorium


The village of Hatsik is located about ten minutes from the city of Armavir in Armenia’s Armavir region about 60 kilometers from Yerevan. Hatsik is home to 2,560 residents. The village has one school with 260 children in attendance. In 2013, The Paros Foundation and its SERVICE Armenia program began the renovation of one of the two buildings on campus. Over the course of four years, renovations were made to three bathrooms, twelve classrooms, the hallways, gym and locker room. The facade of the building was also repaired. The school’s auditorium needs to be renovated to facilitate school gathers and performances. This renovation will include the replacement of the windows and doors, rebuilding of the stage, new electrical, new paint and new seating. The renovation will also include the cosmetic renovation of the hall immediately in front of the entrance to the auditorium.

Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.

The Need
260 children in the school at Hatsik do not have a proper auditorium to conduct plays, hold gatherings and performances. The school and its students have a vibrant and active schedule and would greatly benefit from this renovated facility.
Short Term Impact
In the short term, the school would immediately benefit from a renovated auditorium. Materials and labor would be purchased locally, which would benefit the local economy.
Long Term Impact
In the long term, both the school and the village would benefit from a new gathering and performance space. In addition to furthering the education of the children at the school, Armenia’s culture will be promoted via a new emphasis on performance and the fine arts.
Sponsors Benefits
All sponsors will be recognized on The Paros Foundation website, in appropriate press released to this project, and on a plaque installed in the Hatsik School Auditorium.
