As we begin a new dawn and new decade, we need to take a step back to remember Arman and the journey we started in May 2019. With your compassion, commitment and support, we created the Arman N Roy foundation and together funded technology projects that have positively impacted over 500 underprivileged youth this year. We are so very grateful that you took a leap of hope with us and look forward to giving even more to those who need it most in 2020!

Changing the Trajectory of Lives Through Technology
Our mission is to give hope to youth facing homelessness, poverty and abuse..the most vulnerable among us. Through our work with Covenant House, we are funding the expansion of the Dove Learning Center iPAD program to help homeless youth build technology skills. With AnnieCannons we have funded a scholarship to a homeless 17-year old young woman to participate in their bootcamp training program giving her an opportunity to earn $75-$100 per hour. She is excited to start her first class in February!
With our newest partner,DonorsChoose, we are helping teachers in three different NJ schools reach students from high poverty backgrounds dealing with broken families, learning disabilities, and violence so they have a renewed interest in themselves and their education.
“Dear Arman N Roy Foundation, I would like to thank you for your donation of virtual reality headsets to my classroom. The shift of instruction that has taken place due to these enhancements has been immaculate. As an educator seeking to provide my students the best instruction, their excitement has ignited a new fire within me. To seek out new methods to incorporate these tools has further pushed me to be a better teacher. I attribute all of this to this great donation that has been made on your behalf. My students have continued to excel and extend their learning. Through the use of the virtual reality headsets my students have been able to explore places throughout the world. They have enhanced their understanding of art concepts with up-close experiences. In addition to this, they have begun to listen to audio tours and explanations. It has been a joy watching these students construct their own knowledge, develop questions about the subject matter, and move beyond what they see simply in a textbook. On behalf of my students and myself, we truly thank you! - With gratitude, Mr. Rivera”
We still have a lot of work to do! In 2020, we are launching several new computer technology initiatives that will completely change the trajectory of the lives of vulnerable youth. Please join us at our Inauguaral Gala or visit our website www.armanroy.org to learn more and get involved.
