[CSFC]: Summer Camp in Hrazdan

August 3, 2009

This summer, twenty-six children from FARs Homeless Children Center had the chance to leave Yerevan for the first time for a two-week summer camp vacation in Hrazdan.  The camp, generously financed by the Yerevan City Municipality, hosts numerous groups of children during the summer. It presents a uniquely refreshing opportunity for beneficiaries of the Homeless Children Center to step into a new environment and meet more children.  Three members of the staff remain with the children while they are at camp, in order to promote a stable environment for the children.

Happy Faces and New Friendships!

[CASP]: Support from Holy Cross College

July 21, 2009

Last Spring, the Holy Cross College Armenian Students Association raised $7,500 for a FAR / CASP sponsored summer camp in Gyumri!  With leadership of Ms. Ani Nalbandian, the group of students and professors organized a charitable concert titled “Pour toi Armenie.”

Over the years, thanks to the sponsorship of CASP and other organizations, FAR organizes camps for children from socially vulnerable families in the Gyumri and Shirak regions.  Recently, we took a trip to Yeghnajur, the sight of this year’s camp.  Our fatigue immediately disappeared as soon as we saw the shining and happy faces of the 25 campers, all of whom are CASP beneficiaries from Gyumri and Javakhk. They are enjoying a summer filled with trips to Lake Arpi, sports, English lessons and computer lessons.

Welcoming us with “thank you” posters, the children asked us to convey their thanks to the Armenian Students Association of Holy Cross College for providing them with this opportunity.  The childrens’ beautiful faces and clever eyes revealed their great happiness – they have made many new friendship that will continue for years to come.
