From the day it was founded, the operations of Miassine Foundation have involved training children from orphanages and care centers of Armenia in different job skills after they left those facilities. The fact is that after leaving Armenian Care Centers the children receive no assistance from the government or any other organization. Therefore, integrating into society and finding jobs have become a huge challenge for those young men and women. Because of unemployment many young men leave for Russia in search of work. As for young women, they often get married to have a roof over their heads.

In 2016 with Miassine Charitable Foundation’s initiative a social Bakery was established in Proshyan village. The main purpose of this project is to assist the above-mentioned group of young people by training and providing them employment opportunities.

Our Team

GRETA S.

Apprentice
My name is Greta. I am 16. This year I am graduating from Nork boarding school and I have just one wish - help my mother. I am not afraid of physical work. I wish to have an occupation to help my mom. My friends are the most important people in my life. I am nothing without them.

OLGA V.

Apprentice
I am Olga. I am 16 years old. I am not like other girls of my age. People take me for a guy. At first it was bothering me, but with time I got used to it. I feel good in our team and I wish to become a good specialist as I like being praised.

KAREN G.

Apprentice
My name is Karen. I am 19. A friend of mine recommended that I join the bakery as an apprentice. It’s an interesting job, but a hard one too. I don’t think I will become a baker. I prefer bread distribution. We’ll see…

GARNIK V.

Apprentice
I am Garnik. I have graduated from school this year and went to live with my mother and brothers and sisters. My sister wished to become a baker, but I’m the one who got the opportunity to learn this skill. Frankly, I wish to share the bread that I bake with my friends Armen and Astrik.

ASTRIK MARKOSSIAN

Baker
I’ve always loved everything French - fashion, music, films. I’ve never thought that French bread will become my profession. I love the atmosphere here – it’s always full of energy and the young students enjoy learning our trade.

ARMEN SARKSIAN

Baker
It all depends on person’s will. If you are excited about your profession you will make progress and grow. I’ve been entrusted with a difficult task, but it’s a pleasure to teach my trade to these young people.

ASPRAM HOVHANNISSIAN

I’ve been working as a baker for a long time. When I learned about the bakery established by Miassine Charitable Foundation I liked the idea and decided to join their team.
