Sporting Goods for Village Schools 4 - Medz Masrik


For many of Armenia’s most isolated and poverty stricken regions, sporting equipment is difficult to come by and expensive to buy. By supporting this project you will help thousands of children attending schools in the poverty stricken villages throughout Armenia. Although schools in these villages may have a few sporting goods, often times, the kids are playing with items that are old, unsafe and unusable. Our goal is to purchase and distribute a variety of sporting goods and equipment to village schools and give these students the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities, play individual and team sports and exercise. In addition, the completion of this project will help to promote health and fitness. The variety of sporting goods will include volleyballs, volleyball nets, basketballs, basketball hoops, soccer balls, soccer nets, wrestling mats, jump ropes, hula hoops, assortment of weights, tennis rackets, tennis balls and some gymnastics equipment based on the needs of individual schools.

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

The Need
Children living in Armenia’s poverty stricken villages cannot afford basic toys and sporting goods that can provide them with hours of entertainment and good physical exercise. This effort would help meet this need.
Short Term Impact

60 students at the Medz Masrik village schoos will immediately benefit from use of the new boxing equipment as part of their new boxing classes. 

Long Term Impact
In the long term the lives of several thousand children throughout the villages of Armenia will be positively affected. This project will not only promote good health through providing them with a chance to exercise, but will also help to increase good team work skills through team sports, and give them an opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities.
Sponsors Benefits

Your donation to sponsor the Sporting Goods for the Medz Masrik Village School  will be recognized in appropriate press related to this important project and your name listed as a sponsor on The Paros Foundation website. The Paros Foundation will happily arrange a visit to the school.
