New Windows for Yeghvard Kindergarten

Description

Yeghvard is a small border village in Armenia’s Syunik Region. It has a population of just under 300 people. Despite its population and border village status, Yeghvard has a vibrant kindergarten with almost a dozen children attending. The kindergarten does not have a gas connection for its heating needs, and old wooden windows make the space difficult to heat and operate in the winter months, thus leaving the children unable to attend.

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

The Need
The Yeghvard Kindergarten needs new windows to help create a safe, clean and comfortable environment for the children to benefit from early education.
Short Term Impact
In the short term, new windows will be installed at the Yeghvard Village Kindergarten. These windows will be purchased and installed locally, thus creating a modest benefit to the local economy.
Long Term Impact
In the long term, children in the village of Yeghvard will benefit from a safe, clean and comfortable environment to attend kindergarten year-round.
Sponsors Benefits
Sponsors of this important project will be listed on The Paros Foundation’s website, on a plaque at the kindergarten and in all relevant press related to this project. Visits can be arranged for sponsors to this kindergarten during their trips to Armenia.
