Project: Adopt a Restroom, Khndzoresk School Phase 2
     
 
   
Project Name Adopt a Restroom, Khndzoresk School Phase 2
Full Description

Representatives of The Paros Foundation have visited more than 100 schools throughout Armenia. While some schools have either been renovated thanks to the Armenian government or as a result of the generosity of international donors, many remain in deplorable conditions and have little hope of being renovated in the near future. These conditions affect both the ability for students to learn, as well as the health of students and teachers.

Khndzoresk is a village in the South-East of Armenia to the south of the Goris - Stepanakert highway near Artsakh. Originally, the village school, which has 306 children in attendance and 20 staff members, had no running water or functional restrooms. Students and staff shared an outhouse-style squat bathroom with no working sinks.

This first phase has been completed, including renovations to three of seven restrooms through our partner and lead contributor the Armenian Network of America – Los Angeles Chapter. Furthermore, new water and sewer lines were installed. Sponsorship of this project will help raise the funds needed to renovate four more bathrooms (phase 2) at the school including, addressing such elements as windows, doors, flooring, lighting, paint, sinks, faucet and toilet. We will also install new water and sewer lines for these new restrooms.

Need

Students need a dignified and clean restroom to use while attending school. Currently, many students have no option other than to use unsanitary restroom facilities, or, even worse, avoid using the restroom at all until they reach a more appropriate venue, which can lead to health issues in later life.

306 children and 20 staff members will have running water and functional restrooms. The reconstruction of four additional bathrooms will employ a contractor and support the local economy through the purchase of necessary building materials and fixtures.

Long Term Impact

Hundreds of children will benefit from a modern, dignified bathroom to use while attending school for years to come. In addition, epidemics and health issues will be avoided through improved sanitation.
