Armine
Armine M. lives in Yerevan with her retired parents, brother and sister. Armine was a presenter on radio and TV, where she organized programs about a children's home named “Zatik” (“Ladybird”) in order to attract sponsors for it. After that, she, together with her brother, founded “Hope and Law” Christian Public Organization of Right Defence. Under this organization Armine has a publishing house, “Children’s world”, and all her employees are young people who have left the children’s home once they had grown up. They publish “My and your planet”, which is a colored children’s monthly newspaper, with a circulation of 4,000 copies in 3 languages: Armenian, English and Russian.

In May, 2009, after a street accident, Armine broke her leg. She can't walk, so she uses a wheelchair to do her duties, in order to realize a big number of programs for the children’s home and for children's education at Armenian University and Institutes when they have grown up.

Armine needs 600.000 AMD to publish books for children, which are translated by herself into Armenian and Russian from English. In the future, Armine hopes to engage a lot of people and organizations in her programs and establish connections with children's homes in other countries.
