2016 Grant Recipient - Women for Development NGO

Thanks to the efforts of the Grants Committee, the Board recently approved a grant of $1000 for Women For Development NGO to renovate the kitchen in the community hall of Tsoghamarg village. Tsoghamarg is located in the Ashotsq region, 15 miles from Gyumri. Tsoghamarg has 119 households, a school, library, medical building, post office, and a community center. The community center was founded in 2011 by Women For Development. Meetings, workshops, family celebrations and other activities are organized in the community center. Last year, the events hall was updated by local volunteers through the financial support of Women For Development. This year, funds from Friends Of Armenia will pay for renovations to the kitchen: two windows, a door, wall repairs, a gas stove, lighting, tables and chairs.
