Dear donors, our partners, it's our pleasure to inform you that Zartonk-89 NGO has been awarded as TOP-RANKED and VETTED organization of 2016 by GlobalGiving as a sign of gratitude and our hard work. Our team highly appreciates this special gesture and wishes to share the success, achievements, and results that we recorded in this project. 

The main purpose of the project is to support the vulnerable and working children of the remote marzes of the Republic of Armenia to acquire basic education by using our specially designed course plan, also create free and unconstrained environment where children can communicate with their peers, acquire new friends and fully integrate into the society.

In the distant marzes of the Republic of Armenia being in vulnerable condition, children do manual hard work in their communities and villages, and as a result, they miss the opportunity of acquiring basic education which is a very important factor in the process of exploration and development of children's intellectual abilities. They become unconfident, self-contained, depressed, they don't get motivated to acquire knowledge which is essential for the rest of their lives.     

Dear donors, your donations were directed in the implementation of providing basic knowledge to our target group of children.

Our regional representatives conducted courses in their communities using non-formal educational methodology through interactive games.

Children were participating in the educational section with great enthusiasm and were asking questions about topics which greatly interested them.

In order to make the course more interactive, our specialists used presentations which gave more descriptive explanation to each topic.

This time the beneficiaries had opportunities to get basic knowledge about technological and digital means and to explore the modern information technologies, and by selecting as a tool the required information about different spheres, such as mathematics, physics, geography, history, etc. As a result, our target group reached to the conviction that one can get knowledge also from the internet. They were promised to learn foreign languages in the nearest future, so they can get knowledge also from various foreign literature.

By analyzing and examining our beneficiaries upcoming steps, their disposition of this program, their enthusiasm and expectations, we came to conclusion that in the future stages of the implementation of the project positive trends would be registered in distant communities, the number of participants will increase in our target group and in the nearest future we hope that the project will spread in all the villages and communities of all the distant marzes of the Republic of Armenia. We appreciate your support and your donations which got directed to the process of implementation of these essential steps.

Please find presented Zempira's story and her message to our donors.

Hello, I am Zempira. I love in Arapi community. From this course, I acquired knowledge which gives me power and motivation. I liked when our trainers taught us the basic computer and internet skills, how to search for books and information about the spheres we are interested. During my free time, I like drawing and sewing. I hope that the acquired knowledge will help me to become the best specialist in the field which I'll choose.

Your Huge Contribution to Our Success

Dear donors and partners, we would like to inform you that the “ICT as a tool for young voices” program has been selected as GlobalGiving’s Project of the Month for September 2016 as innovative, high-impact effect. In this report, we want to share with our news, success and achievements we had during implementation of the program.

The project aims to promote the involvement of the youth of the Republic of Armenia in the development of their communities, to develop their skills to identify community problems and find solutions choosing the modern technology as a tool and a platform.

Being in socially vulnerable condition, the youth of the distant regions of RA, having noticeable lack of knowledge and skills in journalism, mass media, IT, most of them cannot claim and inform the society and share their problems. Some of them get disappointed and leave their communities. As a result, the youth becomes more passive and the community problems become hidden.

Dear donors, your donations were directed towards the implementation of training a new generation of young journalists.

In various communities of the Republic of Armenia we carried out training in non-formal methodology which was entitled “Young Experts.” The training aimed to boost their skills in journalism, analytics and creativity. Develop analytical mind, promote the development of free speech and thinking ability and which is most important to master the main principles of journalism and the progress of the modern technologies.

Active and highly motivated young people form 14-20 years old were selected as a target who want to be involved in the development of their communities. During the meetings our beneficiaries had opportunity to ask their questions to our leading specialists and of course suggest real solutions during discussions and debates. As a result, “Young Experts” virtual platform was created, where the youth can freely communicate, ask the questions concerning them online and receive professional replies. During the meetings our participants were given shirts with ICT logo which reflected the idea of being one team better.

By analyzing and examining the further actions of the youth in distant regions and the condition of the distant regions we came to conclusion that positive changes are expected during the coming stages of the project, a clear plan has been developed, which will be the guidance when completing effective and correct community research. 

 We appreciate that you support us and your donations got addressed to the implementation of this very important plan.

The following is Mary’s creative story and message addressed to all our donors.

Hello, I’m Mary. I live in Vanadzor community. During my free time I like painting. I painted Lui, a 16 years old boy who also lives in my community. Lui wants to solve the problems of our community. He is a strong boy and he never gets disappointed. During this training Lui and me have learnt how to identify the community problems. We are sure that in the nearest future we’ll live in a better and democratic society. Dear donors, in our country we are strong together and your donations help and will help us to live in a place where the freedom of speech, democracy and patience reign.

The Giving Tuesday and our progress

The children are preparing for the Giving Tuesday
The children are preparing for the Giving Tuesday

    Zartonk-89 NGO continues to implement “Providing education for 150 children in Armenia” project in different communities and villages of the distant regions of Armenia. The organization has adopted an important tradition which is to involve our beneficiaries in various holidays and events. Participating in such meetings children seem to become more active, determined and which is the most important they become motivated.

Due to your donation this time our staff visited Pokr Vedi with the regional representatives of the project, volunteers, and trainers.

The children, participating in the meeting, were looking forward to our arrival with great excitement, enthusiasm and expectation which proves the small posters made by our beneficiaries as a sign of gratitude to donors, the staff of GlobalGiving, to all good and kind people and organizations in their words.

The meeting with children took place in the school yard where they enjoyed the beauty and the colors of the nature and they could again freely express their ideas, suggestions and remarks, which will promote the continuation and advance of the project. We value the skills of creativity and the talent. Providing them with drawing and writing utensils, they developed their drawing skills which we think is the best way to express an idea. Similar meetings establish positive sides and characters in their psychology. And that is the guarantee of a healthy and strong society.

In the second part of the meeting we presented them the Giving Tuesday international day.

By listening and learning about it children started to share with their stories and their preferences and some of them, for example Knarik and Andranik, directed their speech to donors.

Please find presented little Knarik’s and Andranik’s speech: “Hello, we are Knarik and Andranik. We are good friends. We live in Pokr Vedi village. We love the life with both its dark and light sides. Today we’re preparing for Giving Tuesday and we believe that there are many kind people who will help us and become our heroes of the day. We have a power which is our knowledge, we have hope for the happy future.

Please do you donation and support us.
