Kanakeravan, Armenia–The Paros Foundation successfully completed its Kanakeravan Art School Bathroom Project in the village of Kanakeravan, Kotayk province, one of its 100 for 100 Projects for Prosperity, through the generous sponsorship of Adam & Rita Kablanian (CA) and Shahen & Arax Hairapetian (CA). The Paros Foundation underwrote all administrative expenses allowing the sponsor contributions to be spent 100% on the project.
“The Art School provides afterschool classes in the fine arts, dance, and music (both classical and folk),” said Peter Abajian, Executive Director of The Paros Foundation. “Having a dignified bathroom at the school is important for both the students and staff.”
The School, which was built in 1992, provides classes to 123 students from both the village of Kanakeravan and a neighboring village. The residents of Kanakeravan have a deep appreciation for the arts and truly appreciate their facility.
The Paros Foundation remains committed to helping Armenia’s children learn in a dignified environment. Many restrooms throughout Armenia’s schools remain in deplorable conditions and with your help, we can fix this one bathroom at a time. Please make a generous contribution today in your family’s name and lets work together to solve this important need. When in Armenia, Paros will arrange a visit and tour of your project. Donations can be made online via credit card or via check made payable to: The Paros Foundation, 918 Parker Street, A14, Berkeley, CA 94710.
The Paros Foundation expresses its deepest appreciation to the Kablanian and Hairapetian Families for their generous support of this effort.
