Technology for Debi Arach!

$14,765 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 36 people in 6 months
Created August 21, 2017

Hundreds of children in Gyumri, Armenia live in extreme poverty. These socially vulnerable children are in need of a safe and enriching environment where they can receive additional guidance, giving them a chance to break their cycle of poverty.

One of the next steps in supporting the children at Debi Arach is to enrich their learning by increasing the amount of technology used in the classrooms. SMARTboards, computers, and tablets have become a basic tool used to expand the learning opportunities for a child. By giving these students this exposure and an interactive learning community, we are giving them a chance to further their education in a way that other children have around the world.

The Debi Arach Children’s Center is a nonprofit after-school program, launched by the Paros Foundation, which provides free of charge support to 150 children and young adults in Gyumri, Armenia.

Most of the children attending Debi Arach live in condemned buildings or "Domiks" (temporary housing made typically from overseas shipping containers left over from relief efforts from the 1988 Spitak Earthquake.) Debi Arach strives to improve these children's prospects through a holistic approach including academic, health, vocational, and social support. The overall goal is for the children and youth to gain opportunities in order to have a brighter, successful future.



Debi Arach Children’s Center is dedicated to providing students with the opportunity to reach their full potential and break the cycle of poverty. With your help, we would like to raise funds to buy 2 SMARTboards, tablets for our students, laptops for our 6 teachers, monitors for our classrooms, and other necessities such as charging stations and storage cabinets. We will also train our teachers in the best practices of how to use technology in the classroom.


We are requesting $20,000 to fully fund this project.
