A Sustainable Future for Orphanage Girls: Qristine
Nor Luyce works with twelve mentees, ages 14-17, from two local orphanages in 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 beginning to 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 Qristine, a young girl from one of the Gyumri orphanages, with a scholarship that would reduce her out of pocket costs towards her education. Qristine and two of her sisters are in an orphanage, while their mother tries to care for her youngest daughter in their village. Qristine also has a brother in the army, whose footsteps she wants to follow. Her goals are to pursue study in the Military department. The requested scholarship funds will cover the costs of her tuition, uniform, books, stationaries and her transportation fee for one year.
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
