The Hidden Road Initiative provides scholarships to students from underprivileged villages who are enrolled in a college, university or vocational program. The purpose of the scholarship program is to have a sustainable impact on the youth we've interacted with through our summer camps and projects, and to ensure that they pursue higher education despite their financial hardships.
To become a sponsor, click below to meet our 14 scholars for the 2021-22 academic year, and learn about how they plan to utilize their higher education and expertise to positively impact the health, environment, economy and development of their village and the surrounding region.
English language lessons have been a staple of HRI summer camps and a favorite of our campers. Taking advantage of the increased use of virtual communication platforms, members of the Hidden Road Initiative are hosting virtual English Tutoring sessions for the students of Shvanidzor and Akhpradzor.
During these weekly one-on-one sessions, volunteers will be working closely with students in developing their speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills through active collaboration, project-based learning, and individualized support. These student-centered sessions will also provide opportunities for learners to draw from their lived experiences, create their own goals, and expand their multilingual repertoires. Teachers will have access to relevant and engaging curricular materials and resources that can be adjusted to meet individual learner’s needs and goals.

This year we completed our most ambitious summer camp yet. Our team of 23 camp-leaders comprised of current members, former campers, and new volunteers from five different countries held summer camps in Shvanidzor, Akhpradzor, and Poghosagomer (in Artsakh)! Our curriculum included classes on art, photography, music, college and career prep, STEM projects, sports and dance, fashion design, and environmental science. In addition to games, therapy, and excursions!
