HUNDREDS OF CHILDREN LIVE BELOW THE POVERTY LINE IN THE ARMENIAN TOWN OF ARTIK. SOME OF THE FAMILIES CANNOT AFFORD A PROPER DAYCARE AND EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES FOR THEIR CHILDREN.
The official opening ceremony took place today, Feb. 18, 2020. It is a great time to show your support for the new center!
The winter miracle can become a reality for the children of Artik. Family and Community NGO will soon open the long-awaited new center in the town of Artik located in the northern, Shirak province of Armenia. With your donations, the center will be able to help more children in the town. The center will provide free daycare services for the children in need while also serving as a cultural and educational hub for the youngsters. There are no similar centers in Artik, and the town itself lacks a lot of resources in the sphere of education and youth development.
