Manana Youth Center


The award-winning Manana Youth Center was founded in 1995 and provides outstanding training for children 8-22 years of age, in all aspects of documentary film production, animation, photography and journalism. The Paros Foundation strongly believes in investing in a child’s creative potential and is proud to support the work of Manana.

In 2007, The Paros Foundation partnered with The Tufenkian Foundation to support the work of the Manana Youth Center. The Paros Foundation provides rent free, modern office space to the Manana Youth Center with the strong belief that a proper environment contributes to the cultivation of creative and intellectual abilities. The Paros Foundation has also sponsored the redesign and redevelopment of the website.

$750 to sponsor an exhibition of Manana Youth Center Photos in Yerevan. Sponsors will be listed on the Manana Youth Center’s website, in all press materials related to the event, and at the event itself.
