We have an NGO that is leased, where we conduct our business and have been helping the most effective for helping people with disabilities. After meeting with officials in the Mayor’s office from the Kotayk region, we obtained a space for free that we must renovate before we open. It is a one story building and we will have 189 square meters. The area is fenced in with a garden and all necessary infrastructure. However, there is a great need for renovation. The most major areas that need repairs are the floors, roof, windows, electricity, heating, interior decorating, bathroom, and doors. We will also require equipment for our professionals to do their jobs effectively. We plan on having a physiotherapist who will have a massage and therapeutic physical training room, orthopedist, neuropathologist, psychologist, speech therapist, special educator, and avocational training room. We need help the most right now as we are so close to realizing our main objective. Help us to be able to better serve those in our community! Below are pictures of the buidling we are working hard to rennovate.

Artistic Design and Table Decoration
By Elina Grigoryan - Project Assistant Director
Charentsavan Resource Center NGO, the State Employment Agency of the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, and the Charentsavan employment center are all collaborating to help give professional training in our program for the purpose of “artistic design and table decoration.” From the 16th of November, eight unemployed women are participating in the program for two months from Charentsavan and the surrounding villages. These women are being paid for taking the time to go through this project thanks to our partners. In addition, a number of these women will become employed and continue to make a living once this project is completed.

Old Partnerships and New Ones
By Elina Grigoryan - Assistant Director
From September 28th we have continued our partnership with Focus on Children Now and have been handing out shoes to our community and beneficiaries. Many people have come from our town and nearby villages to get the comfortable and warm crocs kindly donated by Focus on Children Now before the winter season comes in.
In other news, we have been working with organizations in our capital city, Yerevan, to put on a seminar for our community about domestic violence to coincide with "National Day to Combat Domestic Violence." We held the event on Saturday the 10th and had a great turnout. The conversation mainly led by the organization Society Without Violence was a productive and educational experience and we received good feedback about the event. We have many other plans to collaborate with organizations in Yerevan to put on educational seminars in the coming future.
