[FAR Sponsorships]: Seven lives benefit from the Khanjians.

May 6, 2010

The Khanjian family, one of FAR’s most steadfast supporters, is helping seven children from Gyumri to go to school and purchase necessities like food and clothing, through the 2009-2010 Khanjian Sponsorship Program.

Sebastien Khandjian began supporting three children last year through a twice a year living stipend. Happy to be giving these children a real chance, he convinced his parents and other family members to do the same. Now, four more children have the support of the Khanjians and the opportunity for a better life.

The Khanjian’s ties with FAR stretch back to 2003 when Sebastien came to Gyumri with Patrick Sarkissian and began the Gyumri Information Technology Center (GTECH), which has helped to transform the city’s information technology industry into a booming sector.
