Letters from Armenia

ANI – 9/14/2023

The Prelacy’s Orphan Sponsorship program, established in 1993, remains the centerpiece of the Prelacy’s mission in Armenia and Artsakh. We are pleased to share some of the letters that children regularly address to their sponsors.  


This letter is from Ani,* who is sponsored by Liza Seropian Yessaian.

* We use only the first names of the children to protect their privacy. 


Dear Sponsor,  

This is Ani. I live in the city of Jermouk with my grandmother and sister. I go to 4th grade in school. I participate in dance classes in the afterschool program. After that, I come home and start my homework.  

I have many friends, but Jenulik is my best, and we always do our homework together. I love very much to play in the backyard with my friends and to ride a bicycle.  

If I am being completely honest, I also misbehave sometimes, but I just can’t help it. 


With love,
