[Hayastani Kidak Society]: Celine’s Dispatches – FAR’s Intern in Armenia – Back to City Life. standard

After spending a few days in northern Armenia, the Young Professionals have now returned to Yerevan. Our group is not known for being on time. However, this morning everyone was standing in front of the hotel at 9:00AM. The reason? We were going to meet His Holiness Karekin II, the Supreme Patriarch and Catolicos of all Armenians, in Echmiadzin. Amy and I do not speak Armenian, and yet we were taught the sentence we had to use to address the Catolicos upon meeting him. We intensely rehearsed, hoping there would be no faux-pas. When our group entered the room, we felt very relieved, as we realized that His Holiness Karekin II felt comfortable around young people, and preferred not to ...

[Hayastani Kidak Society]: Celine’s Dispatches – FAR’s Intern in Armenia -Northern Armenia, The Weight of Past. standard

Gyumri was our first stop on the Young Professionals tour of Northern Armenia.  Each of us had images from the earthquake in our minds, but sadly no one expected to see a city still so devastated twenty years later. The charms Gyumri, the second biggest city of Armenia, are today buried under the remnants of the Soviet Union and a layer of rumble that still remains after the earthquake.  Visiting FAR’s target=_blank>GTech, Soup Kitchen and Music School projects gave us a unique opportunity to gain insight into the hardships of life in Gyumri, and the work that FAR is doing to improve peoples’ lives in the city. Next, we moved on to see Alaverdi, and the monasteries of Haghpat and ...
