AMA-Armenia Part of NGO Consortium
AMAA Participates in Unprecedented Cooperation for Martuni Village, Armenia
On the occasion of the Centennial of the Armenian Genocide, AMA-Armenia took the initiative to coordinate the formation of a Consortium of 6 NGOs (AMA-Armenia, Development Principles, “Shen” Charity NGO, World Vision Armenia, COAF, Fund for Armenia Relief) to join efforts in support of Martuni Village, in the Republic of Armenia.
- COAF financed the renovation of the health post of the Martuni community.
- World Vision presented their newly formed Engineering Club and its newly acquired Robotics lab of the school.
- “Shen” NGO showed the new Village website (www.martunigyugh.am) which presents the history of the Village, current conditions and a project which was also financed by Shen; the installation of water pipes providing drinking water for most of the villagers.
- AMA-Armenia helped the villagers acquire 2 brand new tractors and 10 gasoline powered harvesters. These will help villagers harvest hay to feed their cattle during the winter months and also cultivate their lands.
- FAR presented scholarships to Martuni Village high school students.
- Development Principles granted 13 pregnant cows to low income families within the community.
- AMA-Armenia partnered with Teach for Armenia to send a well-trained teacher to teach IT courses and help students develop leadership skills.
- The Partners also visited the computer lab which was provided by the WCC Armenian Round Table.
Martuni was formed in the 1920s by Genocide survivors. It has no dialect of its own because it consisted of people from various parts of Western Armenia. So, the only common language is literal Armenian.
