The main aim of our project was to decrease the number of people who have lack of knowledge.
During the implementation of this project we have had great success. The successful process of the project is from GlobalGiving donations and as well as from the local support in our country. The successful process of the project is also for the implementation of educational reform in our country.
Currently in the framework of this project we have 32 beneficiaries. Previous years were successful as 58 beneficiaries participated in our project over the years acquired knowledge, learnt specializations. Now they work and are able to provide their well-being.
Now we work with 32 beneficiaries, 10 of these beneficiaries came back to school and continue their education at school; they also learn profession and the 22 beneficiaries without leaving their job receive basic education with distance method.
We should mention that the 22 beneficiaries communicate difficulty with their friends of the same age, they are intolerant with each others, and they are isolated due to their hard work and social bad conditions. That’s why we organize trainings on the weekends where they learn how to develop and reveal the opportunities of self-discovery and self-knowledge, to form the responsibility, tolerance, relationship between students. These trainings are effective for them.
I am Ani Petrosyan. I am participated in “Providing education for 90 children in Armenia” project. I highly appreciate the project implemented by Zartonk-89 NGO, which gives an opportunity to obtain the basic knowledge that is essential for human life. Beside the basic education we got most important knowledge during the training. After the training the level of my self-consciousness and responsibility were raised, tolerance and respect were formed, learnt team work and freely express my own opinion.
It is already 6 years we have been implementing "Providing education for 90 children in Armenia" project. The aims are: 1. To assist 12-16 year children in receiving basic education that are deprived of attending schools and give them psychological help and juridical knowledge. 2. To assist the mentioned beneficiaries for vocational orientation, having profession to have job in future. During the implementation of the project we have had great success. The knowledge level of the 58 beneficiaries was raised. The got graduation certificates learnt their preferred professions and now they work in different institutions. Only this year 38 beneficiaries finished the school. The members of the organization took part their "Last bell" event. We should mention that some of the beneficiaries do volunteer works in "Zartonk-89" NGO and are involved in its projects implementation. The progress inspired our organization involving new beneficiaries in our project. For involving many beneficiaries our volunteers visit schools, take the list of students who don't attend to school, and contact them for the interview. The meetings are organized in the office of "Zartonk-89" NGO. After doing the preliminary works on the 1st of September it is given chance for the beneficiaries to attend school. Now we have 18 beneficiaries who attend school and hope their number will be increased. With the help of our supporters we would like to reduce the number of children who don't get education in the world. Thank you for our supporters. Thank you for GlobalGiving.
On May 24 “Last Bell” event was held in “Mkhitar Sebastatsi Educational Complex” and 38 beneficiaries of “Providing education for 90 children in Armenia” project were participated in it. They were also waiting for that day like the other graduates. It was holiday for our organization, beneficiaries, their parents and teachers. They expressed their appreciation to all who supported for “Providing education for 90 children in Armenia” project.
I should mention that in their speech our beneficiaries thanked to Global Giving organization and donors.
The result of our project was that 38 young people finished school and got quality education and professions which are necessary for their life improvement.
I hope this project will continue to assist all the children who having been in bad conditions leave their education and do heavy works.
During the “Last Bell” event the graduates wear T-shirts and their friends write their greetings, wishes and interesting stories about them with color pens on the T-shirts.
“Providing education for 90 children in Armenia” project is in the stage of implementation. During the implementation of the project we had success, 20 of our beneficiaries have finished the school and got quality education. They have learnt their preferred profession and now they have job. On 28th of May 38 beneficiaries will finish the school receiving vocational orientation.
Here is what Karen Mkrtchyan `s mother Injigulyan Marine is writing: “What would be my son’s future without the implementation of “Providing education for 90 children in Armenia” project! I have to mention that the project helped my boy to get education and gave opportunity to study his favorite profession. I am grateful to “Zartonk 89” NGO and to all those people and organizations that support this important project”.
In spite of our achievements we have planned to include in the project not only working children but also those, who have appeared in bad conditions because of life difficulties: parent-less children, children of refugees, etc. We are planning to include more beneficiaries in our project, as these issues are still actual in our community. At the moment we are going to help the 38 beneficiaries of our project to participate in their school leaving solemn ceremony.
We would like to turn to our supporters to join efforts in order to help to reduce the number of children without education in the world.
Thanks to our supporters.
Thanks to GlobalGiving.
Recently we have assisted to 35 working children for their education to buy stationery, transport fees, professional teaching materials for them with 1390$. The donation helped 22 children at the age of 12-16 to come back school and continue their education with the same age children and help 13 beneficiaries to get additional education without leaving their job. Your assistance gave 35 children opportunity to get knowledge, have specialization, to know about their working rights and improve their social conditions with the expectation of finding jobs easily on their specialization in future.
