Khachik Sahakyan's family
Khachik Sahakyan (57) was in the process of renovating his house when we visited him. He was proud to share that he will be doing the work himself.
The family of 4 including Khachik’s wife Susanna (51) and their children Edgar (24) and Meline (22) lives in an old ancestral home at Getap village of Vayots Dzor region. They are very excited with the opportunity to refurbish their old home through partnership with Habitat Armenia.
“First thing I am going to do is the bathroom. The structure is very old and is gradually deteriorating,” Khachik says, “There are crack in the walls and constant moisture leaks.”
They will also install new doors and windows and renovate the interiors as well.
Safe and stable homes are the foundation of successful families and today, thanks to a hand up from Habitat Khachik has been enabled to lay the foundation and look forward to a better future.
“Habitat provides stability and affordability all at once,” Khachik says “and affordable homeownership is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty.”
