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.

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.
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.

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.
