Home Democracy and Development Economic Facilitation Partners

Armen and Nadya Ekserciyan

The Ekserciyans, of Argentina, have contributed to many projects in Armenia. Their contribution to the CIVILITAS FOUNDATION Rural Economic Facilitation Program is the result of their conviction that the most important thing we can do in Armenia’s rural areas is help the population find ways to become self-sufficient. Their financing will be used to provide villagers with milking machines that will increase the output and efficiency of Armenia’s dairy farmers.

Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation

The Swiss-government sponsored aid organization is engaged in many rural support programs throughout Armenia, especially in the Syunik region. In partnership with the CIVILITAS FOUNDATION Rural Economic Facilitation Program, they support a program in the Syunik region, near the Iran border, to provide three villages with well water. The program goes beyond digging for water, however. It focuses on working with the village residents to ensure that proper maintenance techniques are learned and implemented in order to assure the longevity of the wells.
