Cultural Event in Narekatsi Art Institute Third Pan-Armenian Educational Consular Meeting Invitation
Cultural Event in Narekatsi Art Institute
   A cultural event was organized together with representatives of IREX in Armenia and "Future is Open" educational NGO in which children of an orphanage took part.
   During the event "Karin" dance group taught the children a number of Armenian National dances. Both the direct communication and the dances, represented by the group, were of great importance to the children. Though the event lasted more than 3 hours, it was short for them as they liked it very much. We promised that they will take part in suchlike interesing events.

   P.S. These events are carried out in the frames of our summer projects.

   Beeing enabled to take part in the Consular Meeting for the first time, president of "Future is Open" educational NGO Samvel Movsisyan and academic affaris coordiator Marieta Grigoryan will represent reports, make suggestions which may bring to further Armenia-Dispora relations stronger, cooperative fulfilment of educational projects (for example, "Pen Pals" project, etc.), as well as create conditions for "Each child possessing a computer" project in Armenian Institutions.
   We are sure that the fulfilment of above mentioned will do good to the educational system of our country. Our educational plans and projects are quite many as well as interesting. The rest is to find people who can help us bring all these to life.

June 1st - International Day of Children's Protection
June 1st  - International Day of Children's Protection
   It's already the 3rd year "Future is Open" educational NGO hasn't organized any events in June 1st. Through this we want to show that these children should be paid attention to during the whole year. They do need help constantly not only on the 1st of June (for only a single day). On that day too many people suddenly remember children in need and start taking the advertising field, which has never been admitted by our organization.
   We appeal to everyone/every organization that remember these children only on the 1st of June to join us (or to any other organization working in this sphere) and help them in their daily problems (educational, social, etc.).
   In this way we'll be able to make many dreams of theirs come true– hoping that future is really open for them.
   It's only education through which we'll be able to create favorable future for them (having a specialization they'll be able to work in the future, but through constant help we make them sit and wait for a helping hand). And through inappropriate help we simply spoil their lives.
Summer Programs 2007-2008 Educational Year Wrap-up
Summer Programs

   We plan to make children's summer holidays eventful, organizing yard camps, educational games, discussions and sightseeing. The classes will be interrupted during the summer not to bore the children, instead interesting activities will be undertaken. We are trying to organize each activity in a way, to make it an inceptive for them to study better to have stable dignified life.
   They look forward to the classes due to start in September (Armenian, Russian, English, computer, chess etc), before that partaking in enjoyable undertakings.
A meeting with 'Future is Open' NGO volunteers
   On May 18, 2008 a meeting with "Future is Open" NGO volunteers took place on the overview of the classes during the last educational year. Discussions covered the following subjects: overall achievements, programs progress, shortcomings, chairs quality performance etc.. Each volunteer made comments on the observations they had made during their work, related to the children, cooperation/non-cooperation and curricula. Among the achievements it should be mentioned the set up of a new group "Shushan (5-8 y)" in special type orphanage, launching new class "The World and Me"' in Special type school #12, visits made by various organizations, start of the new project "en pals" etc. During the year we have also had shortcomings and flaws both in the curricula and volunteers work, besides, the desire to learn has weakened in the children of Special type school. We will do our best to overcome these shortcomings during the next educational year.
   The volunteers had also suggestions, such as going on the educational activities during the summer, organizing yard camps or a method was proposed to solve the psychological problems of the children, which are sometimes a hindrance in the educational process, enabling the Universities Psychology Faculty students to pass their internship in the NGO. At the end "Future is Open" educational NGO President S. Movsisyan gave Certificates of Gratitude to the volunteers who had performed their volunteering work with special commitment and conscientiousness.
