[FAR Scholarships]: FAR Benefactor Jerar Nishanian Visits Armenia, Pledges More Support for Students. standard

For 20 years our homeland has been following its path of independent statehood. This is our opportunity to pass on to the next generation the values we have inherited from our forefathers and our ancestors’ efforts and hard work – creating, protecting and establishing a free and independent Armenia. In the course of that time, the diaspora’s role and importance has always been great. We saw this once again when FAR had the honor of meeting Mr. Jerar and Mrs. Anahit Nishanian, founders of the Jerar Nishanian Foundation Scholarship, along with the foundation’s board members Vicken Aykazian; Father Vertanes Kalayjian, Pastor of St. Mary Armenian Apostolic Church in Washington, DC.; and his wife Anahit Kalajian, during their recent visit to ...

[Celine’s Dispatches: FAR’s Intern in Armenia] : Our Last Days in Yerevan standard

Everyone was a little bit nervous, but we soon realized that Mrs. Hakobyan was very indeed not only very ...
