Helping Families in Need
Posted: Saturday, April 30, 2011 By "Orran" Benevolent Non Governmental Organization (orran@orran.am)

Orran, meaning "haven" in Armenian, was established in downtown Yerevan in April 2000. The Center has grown from welcoming 16 children in Yerevan to more than 60 elderly and 140 socially vulnerable children in its centers in Yerevan and Vanadzor (Republic of Armenia).

ORRAN's MISSION is to: 1. Divert children from the streets and engage them in academic, cultural, and extra-curricular activities 2. Fight the concept of beggar children as the principal breadwinners of their families 3. Help families "in crisis" 4. Assist the lonely and needy elderly 5. Identify and develop children's interests and talents toward a working career 6. Prevent the spread of destitution and begging among Armenia's children and elderly.

Join us in realizing our mission! Send online Donations to www.orran.am
