Kanakeravan Art School, Bathroom


The Kanakeravan Fine Arts School is located in the village of Kanakeravan 30 minutes outside of Yerevan and serves both this village and a neighboring village. The School provides afterschool program in several of the fine arts including music, dance, pottery, painting and needle work to more than 125 children annually. The School has a committed staff and principal that ensure that their personal passion for the arts is upheld and taught to these children. The School receives support from the local government for administrative expenses and the students pay a modest monthly fee. This support and fees are not enough to allow the School to renovate this bathroom.

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

The Need
Armenia’s villages and its children suffer from lack of facilities for children. The promotion of a child’s education and preservation of our rich culture depend on quality educational institutions. The Kanakeravan Fine Arts School can meet these needs with a modest amount of support.
Short Term Impact
The reconstruction of a new bathroom will employ a contractor and support the local economy through the purchase of necessary building materials and fixtures.
Long Term Impact
125 children will benefit from a modern, dignified bathroom to use while attending the afterschool programs at the Karakeravan Fine Arts School.
Sponsors Benefits
Your donation to remodel the Kanakeravan Art School Bathroom will be recognized with a plaque at the entrance to the Center and your name listed as a sponsor on the Paros Foundation website and in appropriate press related to this important project. The Paros Foundation will happily arrange a visit to the Kanaderavan Art School when you are in Armenia.
