Zartonk-89 NGO implements “Providing education for 150 children in Armenia” project the aim of which is to provide basic education for those children from 10 regions in Armenia who could not get education because of social bad condition, to help them to continue their education at school, get professional skills in order they can find appropriate work in future and improve their families’ social conditions.    

In the frame of this project in 10 communities of 10 regions in Armenia working groups are formed and retrained.

As long as the project is not funded, we have started trainings in 4 communities: (Khor Virap, Arapi, Byurakan and Shenik) by means of individual donations.  Materials are made and printed.

Target group was divided into 2 age groups and checked their knowledge level.  In each group are conducted trainings weekly for 4 hours to complete basic education and teach new skills. 

Hi, I am Astghik. I live in Khor Virap community of Ararat region. I have been a beneficiary in one of the previous projects implemented by Zartonk-89 NGO and I am very happy to participate in those projects.  Participating in these projects, I have had an opportunity to acquire basic education and communicate freely in future.  In the result I achieved such knowledge, skills, human behavior that will be benefit for my community, environment and the others as well.

Now in communities we are planning to implement such a project that will help socially needy children and teenagers to get education, as instead of having education they had various hard works to help their families to overcome the difficulties their parents have had before.

Our goal is to assist those children to get knowledge for improving their living conditions in future.

Zartonk-89 NGO has increased Providing education for 150 children in Armenia’’ project in 10 regions of Armenia, as today many children in the regions dropping off their education have to do hard works to earn their living and improve their social conditions. The organization has created Young Journalists Online Center (YJOC) that has its branches in 10 communities of Armenian regions (Vanadzor, Hrazdan, Martuni and Jermuk towns, Gandzakar, Arapi, Shenik, Shaki and Byurakan villages). Our young people from regional branches has explored and found children who don’t get basic education because of work and social bad conditions, they assist the children with private and groups trainings. All groups were given netbooks, stationeries and necessary books for trainings due to implemented projects of the organization.

Our young people of YJOC have conducted computer trainings, seminars and share their knowledge to teenagers of their communities who have hard works and are in social bad conditions.

We think that this new idea of the project “Equal To Equal Education” is more effective as it is obvious from the children’s active attendance to the trainings. 

I am Vika. I am one of the beneficiaries of Zartonk-89 NGO and as well as one of the founders of Young Journalists Online Center. I participated in implemented projects of the organization and have learned and acquired knowledge and skills in basic education as well as participated in seminars, meetings, trainings to improve important skills related to human behavior, team building, and imagination on civil journalism. I give importance to this project implementation in the regions. In the frame of the project I shared my gained knowledge and skills to young people in different rural communities. Now I share my knowledge with young people from the regions as well. I consider the case useful, fun and instructive.

I would like to take an opportunity and express my gratitude to all who helped and supported us to implement Providing education for 150 children in Armenia’’ project in rural communities of the regions in Armenia.
