Agribusiness on the Border 13 - Alik A. Family
Currently home to 286 households and 955 people, the village of Baghanis was established in the fifth century and is situated in the Tavush region of Armenia. The village is adjacent to the Republic of Azerbaijan, sharing a 2 km-long border. Today, the residents make a living by farming and tending to their livestock. Now, economic development and opportunities for work are essential to continue improving the conditions in this border village. Sponsorship of this project will help provide needy villagers with the opportunity to care for their families and to help improve the village’s economy.
Alik A. and his family have been identified as one of the families who are in need of additional support in order to help their agribusiness grow. Their family consists of seven members including three children and Alik’s parents. Alik works as a contract soldier defending the border in their village. They live in a dangerous area as their home is exposed to Azeri sniper fire. Alik works as a contract soldier stationed on the border. They currently have a barn and are in need of financial assistance to obtain materials needed for barn renovations. Alik will complete the construction work by his own means once we have provided the materials. He has also requested a cow, and a few pigs. As a part of this effort Alik A. and his family will be provided training and/or business tips for the ensured success of their agribusiness. Frequent visits will be made to the family to track their progress and determine the success of their new venture.
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
