Scholarship for a Sustainable Future: Ani H. - Gohar G. - Anna & Gohar G.
Nor Luyce works with young girls, ages 14-17, from two local orphanages and/or from poverty stricken families from Gyumri, Armenia. Under the direction of their Executive Director, Shoghik Mikayelyan, the program provides their mentees with positive roles models and emotional support. The reduction of isolation is provided by mentors and by field trips, which expose the children to various work and educational settings. In addition, Nor Luyce’s program emphasizes the development of educational and career plans. They are now at the stage of either beginning or continuing to help implement each older child’s plan for higher education. Each child has also either completed or is in the process of completing a career plan, which includes the most appropriate type and place of higher education.
Nor Luyce is trying to provide the following young girls from Gyumri, with a scholarship that would reduce their out of pocket costs towards their education:

Ani was born on October 25, 2004 in Gyumri, Shirak region. Her family consists of four people including her mother and two siblings. Her mother does not work, and her father has passed away due to a car accident.
Ani is attending the local medical college and is making good progress. In her free time she likes to read, listen to music, and play the piano. She has been attending Nor Luyce since 2017. According to her mentor, due to the hardships in her life, Ani was in a difficult mental state and found it hard to express her opinion and was closed-off. Thanks to hard work, Ani is in a better mental place now. She is developing her skills and has become more active. She comes up with various initiatives and ideas on her own. She is well on her way to becoming an established and stable individual who knows her goals and how to achieve them.
Ani is going to become a nurse as soon as she graduates. Ani needs assistance in buying books, winter clothes and boots, and the necessary medical supplies for her practicum/internship.
