(AERF), a 501(c)3 non-profit that provides assistance to kindergartens in
Armenia. The bike ride will take place in Glendale, CA on Saturday May 28th,

around the Los Angeles region. Event is scheduled to start at 8:00am.
Participants are encouraged to donate $25 for buying school supplies for
children in Armenia. The 12 mile bike path is perfect for families as the
entire route is on a dedicated bike path on the river. For ages 7 and up.
All Children must be accompanied by an adult. Registration starts at 7:30
a.m. Ride starts at 8:30 a.m. Park in Ferraro Soccer Field Parking.


The Armenian Educational Relief Foundation believes that the future of
Armenia belongs to its youth. We also believe that every child has a right
to a proper education. We are therefore dedicated to creating the necessary
conditions that provide education for every child of Armenia. We hold that
proper education starts from day one and therefore work specifically on
Kindergartens that require the most attention. We are nonetheless willing to
commit our efforts to facilitating the development of education in all
sectors of Armenian life. Realizing that needs exist throughout Armenia, we
work not by providing all of these needs, but devoting our attention to the
most urgent situations. Many kindergartens in the outskirts of Armenia
either lack basic supplies or have outdated ones. The Armenian Educational
Relief Foundation therefore provides the most urgent supplies to
Kindergartens that are in the most impoverished situations. These supplies
can range anywhere from desks, writing materials, beds, and even
refrigerators. The donation of these essential supplies gives the eager
young students of Armenia the basic elements required to start their
education on the right track.


Unlike other aid programs, the Armenian Educational Relief Foundation
provides necessary supplies to kindergartens in Armenia, FIRST HAND. We have
observed the dire conditions in kindergartens outside of Yerevan and have
concluded that they require the most attention. Therefore, we select these
kindergartens and ensure that your donations reach the children who need
them the most by traveling and delivering the supplies ourselves.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
