Water for Verin Tsakhkavan


Verin Tsakhavan is a village in Berd area of Armenia’s Tavush Region. It is home to more than 900 residents. To help provide drinking water to the village, their main water supply was augmented with an additional supply via pump.  This has caused increased pressure in the main distribution pipe to the village and is causing the existing pipe to continuously burst in several places.  The pipe needs to be replaced along a 200 meter section to fix this situation and provide water to the community.  



City / Village

Verin Tsakhavan

Start Date

January 2023

End Date

February 2023

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

The Need

A 200 meter section of main pipe to the village of Verin Tsakhavan cannot withstand the increased pressure to deliver water to the residents.  To remedy this situation, this pipe must be replaced with a higher pressure pipe.

Short Term Impact

In the short term, the residents will benefit from a steady supply of water in their community.  

Long Term Impact

In the long term, residents will not only benefit from a steady water supply, but also become more secure in knowing that their families will benefit from normal infrastructure in this important community so close to the border. 

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.
