True to our plans, work is underway to prepare the grounds for crops and fish farming. Our recent visits have been met with eager refugee families, ready to learn and work. Vince shares about the projects happening now.

Laying the Groundwork
House of Esther, Armenia

Springtime at the House of Esther (HoE) is when we begin all activities for the remaining of the year.
Some activities include preparing the soil for planting vegetables, buying a few chickens and other animals, and making outside repairs and maintenance. 
 
During my trip to the HoE in April, we started the greenhouse, planted potatoes and other veggies, finished the chicken fence, and installed a few gutters around the roof to recover rain water.
 
In May, we traveled to the HoE with Carlos, GHNI's specialist in agriculture and fish farming. We purchased 3500 liter tanks (about 925 gallons) and installed smaller pipes into a mobile home to be able to function all year round. The temperature drops to -35 ° C (-31° F) in winter time. 
 
The resident refugees were very enthusiastic about our visit as we worked with them to prepare the HoE as a home and training center for them and hopefully many more. We also met a few more refugees interested to move to HoE, if finances are made available. Leon and Sofia are getting ready to move into HoE.
 
At this point of the project, GHNI and our donors provide for the refugees' necessities, such as food, clothing, transport, medicine, and the maintenance of the center. With much hope, we are working toward the self-sustainability aspect of the center within a year. With sufficient help, we are working to complete these few projects and continue our Transformational Community Development (TCD) training.
 
We are grateful to all the donors and the GHNI team supporting this special location in the Middle East as a future training center that houses innocent families that were abused and victimized.
