Help Build the Artsvabert Kindergarten
More than 2,700 people live in the isolated border community of Artsvabert. The village is in desperate need of a second kindergarten to accommodate two additional groups of children (60 total), as the current existing kindergarten is full.
Near the primary school in the village, there is an existing building that needs a complete renovation including new roof, windows, doors, kitchen, bathrooms. In addition, work will be completed to the entrance to create a safe and convenient entry to the kindergarten. Once renovated, this building would easily house two additional groups of kindergarten aged children.
Following the complete reconstruction of the new kindergarten, new furniture and kitchen equipment will be installed.
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
The village of Artsvabert needs an additional kindergarten to facilitate early education for the growing number of children in this larger border community. A building located near one of the village’s two schools needs to be complete reconstructed to serve as the village’s second kindergarten.
Short Term Impact
In the short term, 60 children will begin receiving the benefit of early education. At least 6 more employment positions will be created in the community. In addition, a modest economic benefit will be realized as all materials will be purchased locally.
Long Term Impact
In the long term, the community of Artsvabert will benefit as a whole from having a second kindergarten in the community. In addition, 60 families will directly benefit from the services provided by the kindergarten.
All sponsors of this important project will be listed on The Paros Foundation’s website, on a plaque installed at the kindergarten, and in all appropriate press. Visits to the Artsvabert Kindergarten can be arranged for sponsors during their visit to Armenia.
