The implementation of “Providing Education for 150 children in Armenia” project had great success in 6 regions of Armenia ( Aragatsot, Shirak , Lori, Ararat, Gegharkunik and Vayots Dzor).

We have organized competition among 6 communities to provide the effectiveness of the project. In the result the working groups of Vanadzor, Khor Virap and Byurakan have been awarded with prizes.

Additional seminar on the theme of “the role of basic education for teenagers” has been organized in communities (Ararpi, Martuni and Jermuk) for working groups.

Meetings with focus groups have been organized in 6 communities. During the meeting the participants had active discussions and suggestions for the further development of the project. 

We continue to implement the project in above mentioned communities that has its progress.  90 beneficiaries from 6 communities participated in the project. 2014 was more productive year for our organization fundraising which will help us to enroll more beneficiaries for “Providing Education for 150 children in Armenia” project.

We can provide several regional blogs where their works are being presented. As we have working groups in 10 communities of 10 regions and the project has been implemented in 6 communities we have foreseen to implement “Providing Education for 150 children in Armenia” project in 4 regions (Armavir, Kotayk, Tavush and Syunik) as well.  These are the most remote regions in Armenia. We must train the working groups in 4 communities, recruit 15 teenagers from each community, implement questionnaire for the assessment of educational level of the teenagers, organize trainings 12 hours a week and feed them during the trainings.

Dear supporters and GlobalGiving team, It is very important for us to know your opinion about our project “Providing Education for 150 children in Armenia”. It will be helpful for the implementation of the project and you will have your input in the project which is very important for us.

Arina from Lori Region expresses her viewpoint about the project.

Hello, I am Arina from Lori Region.
First of all I want to thank the supporters, GlobalGiving and the organizers of the project for such an exciting and educational program they are assisting and implementing. I am one of the participants in the project of "Providing Education for 150 children in Armenia". During the project basic educational training was provided with interesting and new methods. That was the reason that the participants were taking part in the classes with great interest providing high value of the basic education in their life.

In the frame of the project I met good and kind people. Everything was interesting to me especially the classes organized with via games in the nature. The class about the Armenian painters was very impressive as well. We were also involved in the classes providing extra information about the topic of the lesson. It would be great if similar projects were being organized again with various disciplines.

Our progress in Vanadzor

During work time

The aim of the project was to promote youth involvement in community development process as well as to develop identification of problems, promote youth to find solutions to those problems, promote IT and media sector development, volunteer working activities in the communities.

The project "Communities Young Voice" has progress.  Young people were trained and improved their knowledge level. As a result in 10 regions we have active youth working group and in their communities they carry out research, community needs assessment and  make comments  in their blogs and social Web sites.

Thus, youth employment was increased in communities.  The level of self-confidence and self-consciousness of youth was increased, which was seen in their active work in the communities. Besides the mentioned expected results, our beneficiaries formed and developed cooperation between the beneficiaries from Yerevan.

That is what says Hasmik about project

Hello. I am Hasmik from Vanadzor.  It is already a year that I am a Manager of working group in Young Journalists Online Center in Lory Region. Within the framework of “Community’s young voice” program I have participated in “The usage of Social media in civil journalism” workshop organized by Samvel Martirosyan who is an expert of IT. Karen and Margarita, from our group also took part in the workshop. 

During the workshop the first thought that came up to my mind is that the young people want to activate their community, raise various issues of their communities and find solution to solve them. Then we got acquainted to everyone.  Some of them knew each other already, others became our close friends and advisers later.

The workshop was held in free atmosphere. It was interesting to hear the opinions of our peers living in 11 various communities of our country.

Together we decided to raise the important issues that were in our communities. With the group we tried to solve those issues in the scope of our possibilities.

“Community’s young voice” project gave us opportunity to know clearly how to deal with the injustice going on around us. We had responsibility towards our citizens, our country and our nature.

After the workshop we contacted with the members of YJOC center, who are the founders of Young Journalists Online Center (YJOC). They supported us, helped to organize community groups. Except that some of them became our good friends and advisers.

            «Zartonk 89» had a huge impact in the development and activation of YJOC team in Lory region with this project. The tools provided to us helped our voices to be heard.     One of the outcomes of the project is the blog of our team where we post the work done by our group.

Progress report

During his free, Hayk loves to draw.
During his free, Hayk loves to draw.

The process of “Providing Education for 150 children in Armenia” project is more effective. 14 children at the age of 10-15 from Khor-Virap community in Ararat region are participating in this program.  By means of trainings the children acquired basic education. 

The classes lasted 2 hours and half instead of one hour as the children wanted to spend more hours for their classes. After the classes the children didn’t go home, we organized different types of games, they revised course by means of conversation. It was interesting when we challenged the children to write an essay on the topic of “my dream”. In their essays all the boys expressed their wishes to became soldiers and defend their homeland. And the girls wishes were to live in a peaceful country and wished all the soldiers to come back home healthy and safely. 

At the beginning and at the end of the classes the children were distributed questionnaires for checking the effectiveness of the program.    

In the result of the questionnaires it was find out that the children were satisfied with their trainers, as well as trainings, games and food provided for them. The children want to continue their trainings and get qualified education.

Here is Hayk’s speech. I am Hayk from Khor Virap community in Ararat region. I have my dream like other children. I know that I have to study to reach my goals and dream. My dream is to become a soldier in order to defend my country. I wish the world to be in peace.

I am participating on “Providing Education for 150 children in Armenia” project. Realizing the importance of education I improved the lack of my knowledge. I give importance for the implementation of similar programs as it gives an opportunity the children to acquire basic education.

I hope that in the frame of this program my gained knowledge will be a guide throughout my life.

I would like to express my gratitude to all those people who supported and are going to support for this program.
