Sustainably Transforming Lives

JOIN OUR WORK

The Republic of Armenia, located in the Caucasus highlands of Western Asia, is a nation with an ancient cultural heritage and beauty. 

Our work in Armenia began in the village of Spitak which has suffered from hopelessness and devastation since the earthquake of 1998. Despite recent conflict and other challenges, we’ve launched several TCD projects which are now bearing fruit throughout this community.

VILLAGE/PROJECT

villagers impacted each year

Spitak Village

The aftermath of the earthquake left thousands of people homeless and destroyed about 40 percent of Armenia’s industrial capacity. Over the last 30 years, organizations and the government have handed out relief, and locals focused on aid rather than self-sustainability. There is still a high rate of unemployment in the area and most men go to other countries in search of work. This creates a huge burden for the local women to take care of their household, children, and farms.

One of our main goals is to help the community in Spitak to become more united and focused on transforming their community using their available local resources to start sewing projects and bakeries, and thus become more sustainable. Some men have already decided to stay in the village and do farming instead of leaving their families and working abroad. The local land is fertile for growing cabbages and potatoes, which becomes an income source for a family and is helping TCD go deeper in the village.

Sewing project

Spitak started with a ‘sewing’ project after supporters generously provided sewing machines,  giving local women an opportunity to learn and develop practical skills from a professional tutor. After completing the program, some of the participants set their own microbusiness making beddings, traditional aprons and handbags, while others were able to get a job in textile fabric. The trained women now teach other members of the community sewing skills. This program has also expanded into baking programs and agricultural training to help the community maximize opportunities for families to start small businesses.
