Grigor's support to refugee children

Grigor- the second beneficiary
Grigor- the second beneficiary

Dear donors, supporters,

Millions of people had to leave their homeland and look for a 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. Our goal is to support those school-aged children and give them an opportunity to get integrated into Armenian society. It is not an easy process as we are dealing with children from a vulnerable group and we take on each step with huge responsibility.

This wonderful program of providing psychological and social support to Syrian-Armenian children continues.

 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 you Grigor, who is the second beneficiary of this project; his story and speech are addressed to all the donors:

Hello. I'm Grigor. I'm 10 and I'm studying in 4th grade. I showed great interest in participating in this program, as I think it is a great honor to provide support to Syrian refugee children. My participation in this program was great news as a friendship and brotherhood with refugee children were created.

In my free time, I love reading books, doing sports, singing. My dream is to become a famous singer and footballer so that the whole world will know me and be proud of me. I love my elder brother, who serves in the Armenian Army.

 This is Grigor's story who is our second beneficiary and who is willing to voluntarily support refugee children.

Once again, thank you, dear donors, and remember that your every gesture is important for our team and our beneficiaries. We are confident that this program will be expanded day by day thanks to you.

Progress of our beneficiary in Georgia

Alina, our participant in Armenia
Alina, our participant in Armenia

Dear donors and supporters,

Thanks to your donations we continue to support young experts of the new generation. The communities of Armenia are full of many problems and these young leaders have committed themselves to addressing the current issues through a combination of journalism and information technology.

 This time we want to share with You the story of one of our beneficiaries, Alina, as well as details of her meeting in Georgia. Here it is.

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

A seminar entitled "Digital Stories" was held in Bakuriani, Georgia from December 1st through 8th with 22 participants from 8 different countries (Armenia, Georgia, Ukraine, Moldova, Poland, Lithuania, Italy, France). The workshop provided participants with the opportunity to gain new insights into the preparation of video clips where participants had to share short stories from their lives. Alina, who has been a beneficiary of Zartonk-89 for many years, participated in the workshop and is willing to share her knowledge and skills with our other beneficiaries.

In response to how the seminar will help the process of community development, Alina answered that she hoped to have a workshop in her community in Arapi sometime in the near future to help give young people the skills needed to create “digital stories.”

The following was related to what she revealed as a result of cooperation with other participants in other countries: Everyone, regardless of age, gender, or country, is concerned with the vision of making a better tomorrow, for which they develop and bring to life different ideas.

Our young experts are full of passion, diligence and achievement. Thanks to your donations we will continue to help them overcome challenges and move forward. From time to time they have the opportunity to get training in other countries, as well.

Thanks again for your heavy impact on this program. A better future for our communities is becoming visible thanks to your support. Today and every day, we look forward to welcoming you and hoping that the Armenian communities will become more active and prosperous through this program. Thank you for being with us.

Wonderful #GivingTuesday for children

The children are celebrating #GivingTuesday

Dear donors and supporters,

 Due to your donations, we continue to support the school-aged children living in the rural communities of Armenia.

 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 hardly even 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.

   Our pre-selected pedagogical staff regularly organizes informal meetings in these remote regions and in Yerevan, providing the beneficiaries with necessary school-based knowledge and “life skills."

 Recently we had a meeting at Zartonk-89 dedicated to friendship ideas and themes. It has had a significant positive impact, especially among school-age children. During teamwork, they discussed how to build a strong and lasting friendship. The participants enthusiastically displayed posters on the human values that help to build true friendship.

 In the other part of the meeting, we discussed the importance of teamwork and taught the children about its value. It is very important for us to see their collective strength, as they are future community leaders.

Dear Donors,

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

Thank you once again! We want to share with you an important event and ask for your continued support.

#GivingTuesday is a global movement that kicks off the biggest giving season of the year with charity and gratitude. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world.

Zartonk-89 has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. We would like to celebrate this important and special day with you. Join this movement, make a donation, and help the beneficiaries. Thank you for being with us. Armenian children will continue to benefit from your support.
