I recently had the privilege to spend a weekend in the small village of Berd and the tiny village of Chinchin. In Berd we got to have a great lunch and learned about the Berd Bears project to provide income and training for the local women. In the tiny village of Chinchin we had a water fight with the kids for Vartavar (they have it a week later than in Yerevan) and ate and talked with local villagers as we were broken up to two people per home (simply put: it was amazing). We also got to hear Mariam Yesayan, a spokeswoman (and member) of a local organization of children with developmental disabilities, who was recently interviewed for CivilNet.
Enough talking: Check out the pictures!
