New Home for Karine S.


Karine S. and her two young sons live in the border village of Nerkin Karmir Aghbyur.  Last year, Karine’s husband was killed in a tragic auto accident.  Prior to this accident, Karine and her husband had purchased a home of their own in the village with plans to renovate the space, work the properties orchard and build a future for their children.  

Karine and her boys currently live in a rented home in the village.  The home they purchased needs to be rebuilt completely and partially expanded.  Once rebuilt, the home will have two bedrooms, a kitchen, living room and bathroom.  

Karine and her boys would be grateful to receive the support needed to help them renovate their home and give them a fresh start for their future.

Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.

The Need

Improving conditions for people to live in communities along the border with Azerbaijan is important.  Helping villagers with home improvements is vital to help create a vibrant border community. Karine, a widow, cannot afford to renovate the home she purchased with her husband prior to his death. 

Short Term Impact

A local construction team will be hired to do the reconstruction and renovation work on Karine’s home.  In addition, windows and other materials will be purchased locally, which help support the local economy.

Long Term Impact

In the long term, rebuilding Karine’s home will create a lasting bond for her boys within this border community.  In addition, making significant improvements to her home will improve her and her children’s attitudes and moral, which is equally as important as their living conditions.

Sponsors Benefits

All sponsors of this important project will be listed on The Paros Foundation’s website and in all press related to this project. Visits to these communities can be arranged for sponsors visiting Armenia.
