Verin Getashen School Renovation
Verin Getashen is a large village located just southwest of Lake Sevan. The village was founded in the early 1800s by migrants from Mush and Alashkert in present day Eastern Turkey. Almost 5,000 people call Verin Getashen their home. More than 300 children attend the school, which is in poor condition. Major needs of the school including replacing the roof, windows and heating system will be addressed as funds become available for this project.

Thanks to the generous support of Developmental Services for Armenia and the Dunaians Family, work on the roof at the school has begun.
Work on the roof has been completed.
The Dunaian Family visited the school today with Paros Project Manager, Gegham Minasyan. During their visit, they viewed the interior of the school to determine the next steps forward.
Work on the kitchen, dining hall and storage room began today. This effort is supported in partnership with support from Developmental Services for Armenia and the municipality of Verin Getashen and materials from the World Food Program.
With the subfloor installed and drying, the work at the Verin Getashen School has stopped. Work will begin once the stay at home orders are lifted and it is safe to return to work.
With the easing of the stay at home orders, work once again began at the Verin Getashen School's kitchen, cafeteria and storage room.
