The Tekeyan Centre Fund supports the project “Free Textbooks for Needy Children”

10 November, 2017 | 08:41

Education is one of the priorities for any civilized country. But, unfortunately, due to financial situation, many children are deprived of a minimally adequate educational program since they are more susceptible to the consequences of poverty.

The Tekeyan Centre Fund cares for children whose families cannot adequately provide for their education.

Since 2010, thanks to benefactors, the TCF supports the project “Free Textbooks for Needy Children” which helps the most socially disadvantaged schoolchildren get textbooks for free.

The project is entirely based on donations which are mainly provided through the efforts of the London Tekeyan Trust, which initiates fundraising campaigns not only in the UK but also abroad.

In the academic year 2017-2018, the TCF provided 190 schoolchildren from Yerevan, Gyumri, Stepanavan, Karbi village and Berdzor with 2,433 textbooks for free and relieved the financial burden of their families. And the total number of textbooks supplied by the TCF within eight years is about 19,000 at the total cost of AMD 10,135,000.

The TCF aims at increasing the number of project beneficiaries and relies on the generosity of its benefactors. The TCF invites organizations, individuals both from Armenia and the Diaspora to cooperate with it and to support vulnerable children.
