Hayastan All Armenian Fund continues its work in Tavush region’s border villages realizing a whole spectrum of development initiatives, ranging from large infrastructure restoration projects and economic assistance programs to small scale projects aimed at changing the life of a family in need. As part of this small scale assistance effort, five economically challenged families living in Ditavan and Lusahovit communities received dairy cows that will provide them with a much needed and dependable source of income. The project was brought to life thanks to benefactors Archie Andonian, Isabelle Hodgson and Toros Mangassarian via Armenia Fund USA.

The beneficiary families were selected with the active participation of their respective communities. The preference was given to families with three or more children.

“I want to thank the Hayastan Fund and all the benefactors for their help,” says Anush Sahakyan, a mother of three who suffered a terrible tragedy when her oldest son drowned two years ago. “We hope that this cow will help us get through the rough times and change our life for the better. The only income we have today comes from the tiny state pension.”
Anush Sahakyan’s case is not unique as many families living in the border villages are in a day to day struggle to provide their children. Unfortunately, sometimes this struggle ends with people moving out of their home villages to look for a better life for them and their children. This tendency seriously endangers the future of the border villages and is one of the main challenges the Fund faces while working to improve life in these strategically vital communities.

“This project is an integral part of a wider scale solution for tackling the economic woes of the six beneficiary villages in Tavush region,” says Ara Vardanyan, the Acting Executive Director of the Fund. “This wider scale solution includes and agricultural machinery park and milk collection center that will help the villagers generate stable and dependable income and build up their home community with their own hands, crafting a better future for their children.”
