Project: Restroom for Tsoghamarg Village Events Hall

   
   
Project Name Restroom for Tsoghamarg Village Events Hall
Full Description

The Women for Development NGO (WFD NGO) was founded in Gyumri in 1997. Since its establishment the organization has been implementing educational, health care and community development projects in the villages of the Shirak region. Their mission has been to mobilize these communities through increasing community involvement and education.

One of the villages that the WFD NGO is involved with is Tsoghamarg Village located in Ashotsk region and is 20km from Gyumri. There are 558 residents in the community. Working alongside WFD, village residents came together and built an events hall. Meetings, workshops and events are organized and held in this space. This center was built to support the community, provide a space to help residents raise and solve existing problems, and to promote the community members' participation and mobilization. However, absence of a public restroom is a problem for proper functioning of the events hall. While organizing different family events the population faces a problem of discomfort, which in its turn brings about sanitary-hygienic and ecological problems. Next to the events hall there is space where a small Western style restroom can be built. The restroom will only be used during events carried out in the events hall. The organizers of each event will take the full responsibility for the use and upkeep of the restrooms. The goal of this project is to provide basic sanitary-hygienic conditions during large-scale events to be carried out in the Tsoghamarg Events Hall. Sponsorship of this project will help construct two Western style restrooms at the Tsoghamarg Events Hall; one for women and one for men.

Need

The Events Hall in Tsoghamarg has become a popular place for the villagers to organize and hold different family and public events.
