Scholarship For A Sustainable Future: Arevik Q.
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 Arevik, a young girl from Gyumri, with a scholarship that would reduce her out of pocket costs towards her education. Arevik lives at home with her parents, two sisters and brother. Her father is unable to work due to heart issues while her mother’s income, as a nurse, is not enough to support their whole family. Arevik has chosen to follow her mother’s footsteps in the medical field and is currently attending the Gyumri Medical College studying Pharmacy. She hopes to have her own pharmacy one day. Arevik is also very interested in archeology, law and reading books and has in the past taken dance and drawing classes. Her ultimate dream is to one day travel to Venice. The requested scholarship funds will help Arevik continue her studies and cover the costs of her tuition, uniform, books, stationaries, winter clothing and her transportation fee for one year.
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.

After receiving the scholarship funds, Arevik and her sister Lusine were both in need of winter coats in order to stay warm during Gyumri's cold winter. Due to their families financial limitations, their mother was unable to purchase the coats. Upon hearing about this situation, our generous donor, Mr. Candan, who funded both sisters scholarships, covered the costs for the girls to have brand new and warm coats.
