ArmInfo.The idea of creating a "4090 Charity" Foundation, which symbolizes the highest peak of Mount Aragats, arose immediately after the 44-day Artsakh  war.

The five friends rallied around a sincere desire to help war  veterans adapt to social life and have a chance for a decent future  through education after the upheavals they experienced. The  Foundation decided to take on the task of educating war veterans,  identifying it as "the best weapon to change their lives and the  lives of those around them."

However, no matter how pure and necessary the intentions are, outside  support is always required, including from partners and patrons.  Araratbank was one of the first to join the "4090 Charity" Foundation    as a partner and friend, which, within the framework of corporate  social responsibility programs, attaches particular importance to the  development of education in the country.

On November 20, with the Bank's support, a concert was held by the  Armenian Symphony Orchestra "Symphonic Mansuryan" in Yerevan at the  Aram Khachatryan Concert Hall, which performed the works of maestro  Tigran Mansuryan, written for Armenian films of the Soviet era, which  are of special value to this day.

Mansuryan's music was accompanied by video episodes from the  favorite films of "Armenfilm". The composer himself honored the event  with his presence. Executive Director and Chairman of the Management  Board  of Araratbank Mher Ananyan noted that it is a great pleasure  for the Bank to participate in such programs. "I always avoid the  word <charity> in such cases, we just feel more accomplished when we  participate in events of this kind, and we see people who, despite  their still very young age, have gone through great trials, and after  that they make efforts to become wealthier members of society," he  stressed.

Mher Ananyan drew attention to the fact that banks should not only  provide financial support, but also help bring together people who  create values and their holders, which will help to educate good  people, citizens and society. He called the composer Tigran Mansuryan  a person who forms values, who, according to him, is the standard of  human values, the image of an Armenian, and patriotism. <Our work is  small. it consists in facilitating the transition of young people to  "Mansuryan values". We are living in difficult times, and at this  moment the most important thing is the formation of the right value  system, the right person and citizen. And we all have to do this  together," stressed the head of Araratbank, noting that without  general cohesion, financial resources, human qualities, positive  emotions and impulses have no value.

In turn, Executive Director of the "4090 Charity" Foundation, Irina  Pahlevanyan, said that the organization took its first steps with 27  beneficiaries, collaborating with 9 universities, and today the  Foundation helps 60 young guys who participated in the wars to  receive education in 17 universities of the country. He noted that  most of these young people were educated in medical and technological  specializations, but there are also economists, historians,  musicians, radio physicists, etc.. "Our goal is to change the quality  of life of our fellow war veterans through education. It is very  important for us that they live a decent life in their homeland>,  Pahlevanyan emphasized.

She also said that in addition to financial assistance in obtaining  education, beneficiaries go through several stages of recovery.  Moreover, lectures and trainings are held within the community with  the participation of experts, including international ones. The  Foundation also creates a platform for communication with people who  have achieved success, which inspires young people to create a worthy  future for themselves and their loved ones.

"But for us the most important thing is to help the guys lead a  responsible lifestyle, because education is not always the key to  being a good person, citizen, member of society,"  Pahlevanyan noted.

The Director of the Foundation said that when choosing beneficiaries,  in addition to participation in the war, the social status of the  latter, the financial component, health status, and aspirations are  also taken into account, while the average qualification score should  be above average. The beneficiaries are also required to actively  participate in lectures, seminars organized within the Foundation,  and volunteer. <Our goal is that in 5 years we will not be needed.  Let there be no war, war participants, veterans and those who have  the status of such a beneficiary," she said.

In this regard, Irina Pahlevanyan noted that next year the Foundation  plans to actively conduct lectures, seminars, master classes for  beneficiaries with the participation of highly qualified specialists  within the Organization;  to establish a platform for career guidance  in 2025;  those who entered the university this year will graduate  from the bachelor's degree in 2026, and by 2028 the Foundation  strives to become an educational fund with endowment capital, which  will carry out larger programs and research. She also said that the  Foundation also holds events outside of Armenia, in particular in  Moscow, Doha, Los Angeles, in order to attract the potential of the  Diaspora to work.

It should be noted that before the concert of Symphonic Mansuryan,  the participants of the 44-day Artsakh war climbed the stage, and as  a sign of respect and gratitude, the Yerevan public stood and greeted  them with non-stop applause.

It was noted that all proceeds from the concert will be transferred  to the "4090 Charity" Foundation.
