Getashen Kindergarten Playground
The village of Getashen is a town in the Armavir Province of Armenia, a few hundred meters away from the Turkish border. This village of 2,300 people currently houses one village school with about 280 kids in attendance. Last summer, along with our SERVICE Armenia 2015 group, we created a fully operating kindergarten for the younger children in the village.
25 children now attend the newly created kindergarten. Although they have a safe and warm environment to begin their education, they do not have a suitable outdoors play area. Sponsorship of this project will help install the necessary equipment to create a small playground for the children. The principle of the school has made a small courtyard located within the school grounds available for a playground for the children. The creation of a playground for will help complete this newly built kindergarten and give these children a safe and fun environment in which to supplement the start of their educational careers.
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.

SERVICE Armenia 2016 participants and local students joined together to assembly three play structures for the kindergarten at Getashen. 100 + degree temperatures created a significant challenge for all. By the end of the day, the area had been cleaned up, uneven areas filled and the three structures assembled. Thank you to our sponsors and volunteers for a great day and a great addition to the Kindergarten!
