Transformational Community Development (TCD) training took place at the end of May in the House of Esther (HoE). Before the training, we spent some time on administration and preparation. We had participants from Armenia, Kazakhstan, US, Holland, England, and Uzbekistan.

Positioned as a Training Center

It’s winter at the House of Esther (HoE) and since October, there have been a few days of snow, wind, and cold temperatures. We gathered firewood and branches to burn in the recently installed wood stove. We also worked to insulate all visible pipes, water tanks, and outside faucets. The greenhouse plantings were prepared for winter.

 

Preparing for Winter

Partnering with Local Resources

Spring is nice and warm in many parts of the world and especially at the House of Esther (HoE). A beautifully mellow, green color starts covering the fields and the hills. People, birds, and animals get outdoors to enjoy the beauty of nature.

 

Spring Activities

January, February and March, are easy-going months in Spitak, especially at the House of Esther (HoE). The winter only allows limited activities, such as regular maintenance and keeping warm until the warmer months of spring. Our refugee residents are getting used to the local weather.  

 

Surviving a Meagre Winter

House of Esther, Armenia

 

It was a mild month of winter at the House of Esther with just a few frosty evenings. The residents kept warm inside and did a few outside tasks on the greenhouse when possible. They prepared the two side ventilation windows, and then will soon work on the side doors of the green house. We need to buy the few metal angles, square pipes, and welding material.

 

Winter Work

Surprisingly, we enjoyed a milder and manageable winter in the House of Esther (HoE). Could this possibly be due to the effect of global warming?

 

For the house, we secured windows, doors, and roofing to prevent wind and snow damage. The greenhouse was placed on standby, as we were not able to provide the plastic cover yet.
