The Bonus Day and our progress

The children are preparing for the Bonus day 1
The children are preparing for the Bonus day 1

"Zartonk-89" NGO continues to realize the project "Providing education for 150 children in Armenia" in various communities and villages of the distant regions of RA.  The organization arranged again a visit to Khor Virap community of Ararat region aiming to hear so important opinions and offers of our beneficiaries - children.  The beneficiaries of the project, the volunteers of the organization, the person responsible for the project of Khor Virap community - Astghik and others were present at the meeting.  The meeting with the children was held at the garden, where the children shared with their offers in the fresh air and surrounded with beautiful scenes of the nature.  Each of them had the opportunity to freely express their own opinion related the future course of the project.  Then the person responsible for the project of the community - Astghik, together with the volunteers of the organization, conducted a small painting contest aiming to let the children depict phenomena and symbols characterizing their future profession through the amazing language of painting.  The children were painting with a great enthusiasm and using colored pencils and papers to illuminate their paintings.  That moment was very important for us because it seemed that the great desire of becoming a good specialist (doctor, musician, engineer, designer etc.) and contributing to our society was growing up in them. 

In the result the children had the opportunity to present their paintings, why they had selected that profession, to ask the questions exciting them.  The representatives of our organization promised the children to conduct such meetings often and provide with popular materials on their professions.  We think that such meetings are very important for children and are aimed at making the children feel the necessity of becoming competent specialist.  At the meeting we presented the children the important Bonus day.  They got informed that it will be held on September 21th and will last from 6:00:01 AM to 23:59:59 PM EDT.  The response of the children was enthusiastic.  They called on our donors to make donations contributing to the project.  Here is Abraham's call to donors.

       Hello, I am Abraham, I live in Khor Virap community in Ararat region.  I want to call on all our donors of our project to make donation on Bonus Day and help my friends and me.  I want to become an engineer and depicted my profession today.  I am very happy that there are people in the world who are ready to help us.

Ani presented our platform

Summarizing the "Power of democracy" training-course within "ICT as a Tool for Young Voices" project, "Zartonk-89" NGO wanted again to enthusiastically and responsibly plan the future process and continuation of the project.  Aiming at the engagement of other regional groups and representatives, as well as valuing the significance and relevance of group work, "Zartonk-89" NGO invited a meeting-discussion.  In order to enlarge the frame of "Democratic youth" social platform formed in the result of our activities, Vigen Mkrtchyan - the Project leader, and Ani Melkonyan - the person responsible for the regional project, conducted meetings in such regions of RA, where the project is designed to be realized in the future too.  Again 16-20 years old young people were present at the meeting, who expressed their great interest in the establishment of democratic institutions in Armenia.  Sharing with our experience and acquired results, we presented our steps and future goals for the project continuation and the enlargement of the newly shaped platform to the other beneficiaries.  Ani Melkonyan - the person responsible for the regional project presented the future activities, the importance of selection of the target groups of the project and the mission and goals of the project.  At the meeting our beneficiaries asked their questions and, as future democratic leaders, expressed their great desire and enthusiasm to engage in regional projects.

Ani, who is responsible for the regional projects, will share with her experience and skills in the enlargement and promotion of "Democratic youth" platform.

Hello,

I am Ani.  I summarized the "Power of democracy" training-course within "ICT as a Tool for Young Voices" program and presented the "Democratic youth" platform to our young beneficiaries.  It was of my own responsibility to hear people, who were competent and motivated, had their own views on the solution of democracy issue in Armenia.  This meeting was going in a ease and friendly atmosphere, where each opinion and suggestion was heard and definitely was to contribute to the enlargement and reinforcement of our frame in the future.  In the end of the meeting the question forms were distributed amongst the participants, where they had to answer and express their opinion on the issues, which were related to the foundation and development of democracy.  Of course, it was interesting for us to hear the positions of the future democratic young people.  I, as the person responsible for the region projects, aim at the continuation of the project and enlargement of our frame collectively with the project leader Vigen Mkrtchyan because the reaction of the youth was strong, which is the source of our motivation.
