Focusing on six border communities in Armenia’s Tavush region, the Fund is working on effectively tackling these challenges and ensuring the people living in these villages a better life. As part of this on going initiative, the Fund signaled the launch of two projects in the community of Ditavan. Thanks to Argentinean Armenian benefactors Armen and Nadya Ekserciyan, the village will soon have access to natural gas and a reconstructed community administration building.
The parallel launch of these two projects is part of the Fund’s comprehensive strategy of tackling the whole spectrum of challenges that the people living in the beneficiary villages face today. In this sense, the gasification of the village was the first on the priority list for the community where people depended almost solely on the neighboring woods for a source of heat in the long winter months. This has brought to a serious damage to the environment of the region. The lack of access to natural gas has also become a catalyst of emigration from this tiny border village with people escaping the dread of yet another cold winter. This year, all this is about to change – the community will receive gasification and people will no longer have to make long trips to the nearby woods just to heat their homes.
he community administration building restoration project is designed to incorporate the features of the village mayor’s office, the community center as well as the health care point, becoming a social and administrative hub of the village. The renovated building will also be fully refurbished and reequipped.
“There is a lot of excitement in the village,” says Seyran Sargsyan, the mayor of Ditavan. “People are finally starting to feel that things are changing for the better thanks to the Hayastan Fund and our benefactors Armen and Nadya Ekserciyan.”
“The completion of these two projects will not solve all the problems facing Ditavan today but we will instead become a strong and positive signal for the families living in the village that their community has a future. These projects will become the firm base upon which we together with the people of Ditavan and the support of the benefactors will build a thriving community,” says the Acting Executive Director of the Fund Ara Vardanyan.
