Arayik Grigoryan's family

Arayik and his family of 9 live with an extended family in their ancestral home in Aghavnatun village, Armavir region.  Arayik was very excited to show us his own house that was being renovated through Habitat’s intervention.  He was happy to share that he will be moving to the new house with his wife Gohar (30) and two children; Ashot (10) and Lusine (7) in spring next year.
“We can’t wait to complete the house. It is amazing to see the progress day by day,” Arayik says.
Arayik is a truck driver and usually goes to Russia for migrant construction work in summer.  Gohar helps Arayik’s parents with agricultural activities in their garden.  Arayik could not find words to express his gratitude to Habitat.
Arayik said, “It is very hard to share home with a large family. My children don’t have privacy and don’t have enough space to do their lessons. In winter, we have to gather in one room to reduce heating costs. The upcoming year will be different for our family. We will have our own place to call home.”  

Thanks to Habitat Armenia’s support their long awaited dream will soon become a reality. They have already and installed new doors and windows and will finish the interior renovation by spring.
