You are the owner of your community

Dear donors,

We are glad to inform that due to you, we can continue to support the new generation of young journalists to explore the main problems of their communities, and to carry out research and analytical work.

The main goal of the project is to encourage young people and teenagers of the Republic of Armenia to be able to identify community issues and offer solutions. All this can be achieved when beneficiaries of the program have an opportunity to participate in informal training modules and interactive meetings, where they will have the opportunity to freely express their thoughts and ideas and cultivate problem-solving mechanisms together.

Young people provide their energy and motivation to the community, and we attach great importance to providing them with media knowledge and the digital media skills needed to use social media in civic journalism.

Dear donors, your donations are still being applied toward the work of building sustainable and strong communities. We are ready to share the progress we make in the near future. We are grateful for your support and its important impact.

We would like to inform you that the names of all project participants were changed in order to protect their privacy.

During the meeting, Mary, one of our beneficiaries, wanted to send a message to all donors of the project. We present you Mary's story.

Hi, I'm Mary. At first, I was nervous to talk about the problems in my community. Sometimes there were obstacles that forced me to cover my thoughts and suggestions. The community is a timeless part of my life. Due to this project, now I can use all my abilities and skills to help my community prosper. I think we are a strong team, and we will use that advantage in the most effective way. I used to be afraid to raise the issues of my community, but now I am sure that together we will build a wonderful state environment. Thank you!

Continuation of distance education

Roman's philosophical question

Dear Donors,

Our world looks different now with COVID-19. But that doesn’t mean that we cannot make a difference – in fact, our support is needed now more than ever. We’re excited to let you know about changes in our program that will help you make an impact from wherever you are, whenever you can.

In remote communities of Armenia, people live in extreme poverty. It is difficult for parents to build a prosperous life for their children, as many of them can barely make a living. The goal of our team is to improve the quality of life for children in these families and, most importantly, educate them.

The aim of this project is to help the children to fill the gaps in their knowledge, to feel comfortable in a group, and to learn and work in a friendly environment.

We are again happy to mention that, due to your great impact on this project, you are building a solid basis and strong connection with our beneficiaries.

This time, we instructed our beneficiaries to answer the following question: “How are you, really?” It was very important for us to hear their opinions and answers about this new reality: as there is a pandemic, they should shift to distance education.

We hope that we will have a chance to share happy and important moments with you.

Dear donors,

We would like to inform you that the names of all project participants were changed in order to protect their privacy.

The following is Roman's story and message addressed to our donors.

“Hello, my name is Roman. I am glad to be involved in this program again because, during the pandemic, this program is helping us even more to become stronger, to be educated, and, of course, to make up for missed knowledge. I am sure that this period will end and we will live in peace and freedom. Thank you for helping me – it makes me happy.”

We can do this together

Dear donors and supporters,

Millions of people had to leave their homeland and look for shelter in various countries because of the armed conflict in Syria. Those who survived the war are mostly children from Armenian families living in Syria.

From the corresponding studies and research, it is evident that immigrant children and teenagers need to be involved in non-formal training modules, where they will be able to share their ideas and suggestions, work in a team, and look for solutions to their problems.

Our goal is to help the target group children, give them an opportunity to get integrated into Armenian society and, of course, reduce their social and psychological problems.

We need your support in this difficult process more than ever. Together we can help children to smile and forget about ther terrible experiences of the war.

During the meeting, the beneficiaries had the chance to work both as a team and individually. The participants completed their assigned tasks, listened to one another, and obtained new knowledge with great enthusiasm.

Dear donors,

We would like to inform you that the names of all project participants were changed in order to protect their privacy.

We present to you our beneficiary, Karine, who received her Christmas gift from Zartonk-89. She is a very positive, kind and modest girl. When asked what her dream is for 2021, she answered that she wants to live in a peaceful country and not see war anymore.

This girl's answer encourages us to move forward and strengthen everything we have in Armenia. Once again, thank you, dear donors, and remember that your every gesture is important for our team and our beneficiaries. We are more than happy to inform you about the measurable progress of this project.
