August 29 was a memorable day for 30 lucky children, who were invited to tour the ArmAs vineyards and winery in Nor Yedesia. Winery staff provided an up-close look at the entire process of wine-making, along with a short review of the vineyard’s history. The children also became active participants, helping the workers to collect and sort the grape harvest. Finally, at the end of a “hard-working day,” the children were treated to delicious meals specially prepared for them by French cook Monsieur Allen. Click here to view the photo album.
The field-trip was not simply educational. It also offered a much-needed vacation for these children, who are beneficiaries of the “Family & Community” NGO in Medzamor, and who come from underprivileged families with no chance to venture outside of their town. The field-trip was fully sponsored by the Tufenkian Foundation.
“Family and Community” NGO is a program of the Tufenkian Foundation in Medzamor city.
