Kanakeravan Art School Multipurpose Room

Kanakeravan Art School, Multipurpose Room

Description

The Kanakeravan Art School is located in the village of Kanakeravan 30 minutes outside of Yerevan and serves both this village and a neighboring village. The School provides afterschool programs in several of the fine arts including music, dance, pottery, painting and needle work to more than 125 children annually. Their committed staff and principal ensure that their personal passion for the arts is upheld and taught to these children. The School has a multipurpose room that serves as a recital hall, exhibit space and dance class room that is need of a cosmetic renovation including new flooring, paint and lighting. The local government provides the Art School support for their administrative expenses, while the students pay a modest monthly fee. Unfortunatly, the support and fees are not enough to allow the School to renovate their mutipurpose room nor the adjoining changing room.

Kanakeravan Art School Multipurpose Room

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

The Need
Armenia’s villages and its children suffer from a lack of facilities for children. The promotion of a child’s education and preservation of our rich culture depend on quality educational institutions. The Kanakeravan Fine Arts School can meet these needs with a modest amount of support.
Short Term Impact
125 children will will have a newly renovated multipurpose room to attend their dance classes, and hold recitals and exhibits. The cosmetic reconstruction of this room and the adjoining changing room will employ a contractor and support the local economy through the purchase of necessary building materials.
Long Term Impact
125 children, their families and the village of Karakeravan at large will benefit from a modern, multipurpose room to use while attending the afterschool programs at the Karakeravan Fine Arts School, and during subsequent art exhibits, recitals and small concerts.
Sponsors Benefits
Your donation to remodel the Kanakeravan Art School Multipurpose Room will be recognized with a plaque and your name listed as a sponsor on the Paros Foundation website and in appropriate press related to this important project. The Paros Foundation will happily arrange a visit to the Kanaderavan Art School when you are in Armenia.

Scholarship for a Sustainable Future (Lusine H.)

Scholarship for a Sustainable Future: Lusine H.

Description

Lusine H.Nor Luyce works with young girls, from two local orphanages and/or from poverty stricken families from Gyurmi, Armenia. Under the direction of their Executive Director, Shoghik Mikayelyan, the program provides their mentees with positive role models and emotional support. 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 Lusine H., a young girl from Gyumri, with a scholarship that would reduce her out of pocket costs towards her education. Lusine, her seven siblings and parents live together in an apartment. Her mother is a housewife and her father is a radio technician who supports their family on a very modest income. Lusine’s future goals are to attend culinary school in 2016 and become a great chef. Unfortunately, due to her family’s current financial situation she is unable to obtain the culinary tools needed to succeed in her classes. She is described as a leader, and someone who is meticulous and honest. Lusine is in need of financial assistance in order to reach her goals. The requested scholarship funds will help Lusine cover the costs of her tuition, uniform, utensils, books, stationary, some clothing and her transportation fee for one year.

Scholarship for a Sustainable Future (Lusine H.)

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

The Need
Children living in orphanages and/or within poverty stricken families are often isolated and may lack the knowledge, adult support and financial ability necessary to make appropriate life choices. As a consequence, many of these children are deprived from the opportunity to pursue their education. The frustration of these deficits in addition to the expectation that they will not be able to afford additional education may even lead to a lack of motivation to seek the knowledge and support needed. By being given the opportunity to pursue educational goals, they will be able to secure job opportunities, a good future and a successful life.
Short Term Impact
Lusine H., who currently lives in Gyumri, will receive the financial support she needs, in a form of a scholarship, covering the costs of her college tuition, uniform, utensils, books, stationaries, some clothing and transportation for one year.
Long Term Impact
The long-term goal is that Lusine H., being given the opportunity to continue pursuing her educational goals at the university level, will have a reasonable chance to become self-sufficient member of Armenian society and have a successful life.
Sponsors Benefits
Sponsor will be recognized on both the Nor Luyce and Paros Foundation websites. Donors will be given regular progress reports on the girl’s progress during their university studies.

Kharpert Home for Special Children Excursion 10

Kharpert Home for Special Children Excursion 10

Description

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.

Excursions for these children to amusement parks and/or other appropriate venues provide these children with both valuable community experience and needed recreation. Children with disabilities in Armenia are generally kept sheltered from society. These children do not attend school, but rather attend classes at the orphanage. It is important for both these children and society for these children to experience community life.

For each donation of $250, approximately 20 children and an appropriate number of care provides will be able to go on an excursion to Yerevan at Victory Park, or another appropriate venue for a morning or afternoon of activities including transportation, admission and snacks. Please consider supporting multiple excursions for these children.

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

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 permit these children regular visits and participate in various social and cultural activities. A child with a disability has very few opportunities to visit the city and experience life outside of the grounds of the Kharpert orphanage.
Short Term Impact
The short-term impact of this project will be the employment of a bus driver, money being spent in Armenia’s local economy and most important the education and social benefits for 20 children with developmental disabilities.
Long Term Impact
This project has considerable long-term benefits for both the children and for society. Society’s attitudes towards people with disabilities will slowly begin to change as witness these children regularly and realize that society can indeed accommodate them as part of their community.
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.

Description

Representatives of The Paros Foundation have visited more than 100 schools throughout Armenia. While some schools have either been renovated thanks to the Armenian government or as a result of the generosity of international donors, many remain in deplorable conditions and have little hope of being renovated in the near future. These conditions affect both the ability for students to learn, as well as the health of students and teachers.

The Paros Foundation will directly oversee the renovation of the school bathroom including addressing such elements as windows, doors, flooring, lighting, paint, sinks, faucet and toilet. Whenever possible, the school staff, students and their parents will be incorporated into the classroom remodel project to help build a sense of community and personal investment.

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

The Need
Many classrooms throughout Armenia’s schools remain in deplorable conditions. Children should not have to try and learn in these conditions. Because of substandard doors and windows, many classrooms become unusable in the winter months because of the cold. In addition, even schools with proper heating are affected negatively with insufficient warmth in the classrooms that have broken doors and windows. While the Armenian Government and others regularly engage in a campaign to remodel schools, they simply cannot meet the huge need.
Short Term Impact
The short-term impact will be that students will have a newly renovated classroom in which to continue their studies. Also six local residents will be employed to renovate the classroom. There will be benefits to the local economy through the purchase of supplies.
Long Term Impact
The long-term impact will benefit at least 10 years of students that will be able to take classes using the updated and modern classroom. This will have a huge psychological impact on both the students and teacher. In addition, the school will benefit from energy savings in the winter months.

Ghoghanj College Enterance Test Preparation 2013

Ghoghanj Children's Center College Entrance Test Prep 2012-13

Description

The mission of the Ghoghanj Children’s Center is to provide the proper support and guidance children need to excel in school and become self-confident and respectful young adults. Founded in 2003, the Ghoghanj Children’s Center works with vulnerable “at-risk” children and their families to help them overcome social, psychological and legal issues.

The Center’s programs are specifically designed to facilitate group discussion and are sensitive to the psychological challenges of an at-risk child and their families. The Center works to develop successful communication, self-expression and tolerance skills among the students. A fundamental focus on homework assistance and tutoring to ensure academic success is a key ingredient of the programs’ success.

As students enter the 10th grade, they must begin preparing for their college entrance examinations. A successful score on these examinations means a child has a chance to attend college and turn his/her life around. As these students have substantial financial difficulties, it is impossible for them to engage a tutor for these tests. This new program of the Ghoghanj Children’s Center would provide 10th and 11th grade, at-risk students free of charge tutoring services for their college entrance examinations. The goal of this program is to help these students transition successfully into college.

Ghoghanj College Enterance Test Preparation 2013

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

The Need
Without successful test scores, it is impossible for a student to gain admission to college. For a financially disadvantaged students, it is not possible for them to hire tutors to help them prepare for these intensive examinations. The Armenian government has provisions for tuition benefits for disadvantaged students, but no help exists for this important step – college preparatory examination tutoring.
Short Term Impact
The short-term impact of this project will be the immediate employment of four subject teachers to tutor these children.
Long Term Impact
In the long term, this project has the potential of turning around the lives of 20 students by helping them gain access to college.
Sponsors Benefits
Your donation to sponsor college entrance exam preparation will be recognized on the Ghoghanj Children’s Center’s website and in their printed materials, and your name listed as a sponsor on the Paros Foundation website and in appropriate press related to this important project. The Paros Foundation will happily arrange a visit to the Ghoghanj Children’s Center when you are in Armenia.
