Armen comes from the small town of Martuni, which is in the Gegharkunik region. The small town is about 125 km away from Yerevan. Armen lives there with his parents and siblings. He is the youngest sibling and is in 2nd grade. During the interview, Armen said that he is a good student, but he likes maths best. He can quickly calculate, add and subtract in his head. He is very happy that he can finally go to school regularly again, because the online lessons didn’t work out so well last year. Schools have closed due to the corona pandemic and as a first grader he learned the letters and numbers mainly with the help of his mother. Armen makes a very serious and friendly impression. He is not interested in many things, not so demanding, he likes to ride a bike and play football in his free time.
Armen’s family consists of the parents and three children. Armen has two older brothers. Ruben (13) and Janibek (12) also have to attend school and, like Armen, learn well. Thank God all three children are healthy. While the mother Luisa (33) takes care of the housework and the children, her husband David (39) works as a car mechanic. But there are so few jobs for him in the small town of Martuni. His earnings are irregular. One day he has something to repair, another day there is nothing to be done. Parents always have to save and put money aside because they don’t know what the next day will bring them. Their modestly furnished house consists of three rooms. Armen shares his room with his brothers.
Armen’s parents would look forward to any support. Unfortunately, they cannot look after their children well because their income is extremely scarce and irregular. As a sponsored child, Armen will be allowed to receive food every month. Every grocery package contains extensive products that ensure basic supplies for the entire family. In addition, Armen can get free medical and dental help if necessary. The sponsorship would be incredibly valuable help for his parents. We thank you in advance for your support and wish you God’s blessings!
