September 14 was a special day for “Family and Community” NGO. All the supporters and friends of the NGO came to Metsamor to participate in the opening ceremony of the new building and share the happiness of the day with the children. During the past 14 years “Family and Community” NGO has been working in a small 60 square meter building. The number of children who wanted to attend the center kept growing, but lack of space made it impossible to the new comers in the center’s activities. With the support of the Tufenkian Foundation, a new building was constructed. This new facility will enable “Family and Community” NGO to work with more than 100 children annually, which is almost more than twice the number of children who attended the center in the previous years.
During the opening ceremony, children welcomed the guests with traditional dances and songs and organized a puppet show in the center’s small theater hall.
The “Family and Community” NGO of Metsamor is jointly sponsored by the Tufenkian Foundation, Armenian Apostolic Church – Armavir Diocese, WCC Armenia Round Table Foundation, UMCOR and PH International.
