We continue to support school-aged children in remote communities in Armenia and are ready to share with you the progress that is seen from time to time. Beneficiaries of this project come to the conviction that education is not a problem, and their knowledge and skills will be invested in the building of strong and sustainable communities soon, as they are the “driving force” of the community.
Education for our beneficiaries has become the key to the solution of life's problems and priorities. Some of them today confess that they are ready to continue their non-formal training with great enthusiasm and be an important part of society. Part of our target group, living in difficult conditions, sometimes even isolating themselves from their surroundings, miss educational training and which leads to psychological complications and breaks the normal rhythm of their lives.
The children of our communities show great interest in getting involved in the open classes where they can compose a view of the beautiful scenery and, of course, participate in the main educational activities. Due to your support, they played an activating game and each of them had the opportunity to share their small ideas that they would try to implement after getting motivated with education. They shared their stories with great enthusiasm. By having stationery and art supplies, the beneficiaries were able to portray the ways that will help them to reach their aims.
In the last part of the meeting, the participants were divided into groups. They were instructed to build their city. Each team will be tasked with developing and designing their city. They will work together to determine the following: The name of the city, 10 City Laws, Landmarks, City Flag, City Anthem, Libraries/Parks, City Holidays.
They will also be able to draw out their city, including the streets, buildings, and other structures. They will have to design a city flag and develop a 4-line anthem for the city. Once each team is complete, they will present their city to the group.
