Support for the Kharpert Home for Special Children


The Kharpert Home for Special Children is an orphanage located in the village of Nor Kharpert serving more than 250 children with varying degrees of developmental disabilities. The orphanage is a state run facility that receives governmental support to provide these vulnerable children with their basic care and education.

Children with disabilities in Armenia are generally kept sheltered from society. These children do not attend school, but rather attend classes at the orphanage and work on arts and crafts.
Furthermore, some of the children use wheelchairs, canes, walkers and other medical equipment to aid their mobility. Due to normal wear and tear, the home is often in need of outside aid in order to replace these much-needed items.

Sponsorship of this project will help obtain four new walkers for the children as well as support their arts and crafts program.

The Need
Approximately 1,200 children live in Armenia’s 15 orphanages. While these facilities provide basic care for these children, their limited funding does not always allow for extracurricular activities such as arts & crafts. Also, additional funds are always needed to help obtain medical equipment vital to the children’s’ mobility.
Short Term Impact
In the short-term four walkers will be obtained and given to the children who need them at the Kharpert Home. Additionally, funds will be spent on their arts & crafts program and will help keep it running.
Long Term Impact
This project has considerable long-term benefits for the children. In the long-term the children will not have any issues having to go from place to place with broken or old medical equipment, hence strengthen their ability to be mobile. Also, the children will be positively impacted by the arts & crafts program for several more months to come.
Sponsors Benefits
Your donation to the Kharpert Home for Special Children will be recognized at the Center and your name listed as a sponsor on The Paros Foundation website and in appropriate press related to this important project. The Paros Foundation stands ready to help you arrange a visit to the Kharpert Home for Special Children when you are in Armenia.
