Robert Ghazaryan's family
Robert (33) and his family of 4 live in an ancestral home in Gosh village of Tavush region. The family includes Marieta (59), Robert’s mother, Anna (24), Robert’s wife and their 4-year-old son Alen. Currently the family lives in poor housing conditions devoid of basic amenities. It is very humid and needs an urgent renovation. There is no bathroom and the toilet is outside of the house.
The family’s income is too low to allow them to live on and renovate their home all at once. Robert is a contractual serviceman in the army and Anna works in the local elementary school as a teacher. Marieta does not work; she takes care of Alen, does the housework and cultivates soil for food. The family could not believe they would ever have a chance to renovate their home until they heard about Habitat. This is the second time that they partner with Habitat Armenia. A few years ago thanks to the partnership they renovated the roof which used to leak.
The family is very excited with the extension of this partnership as three generations will soon live in improved conditions.
