Applications for the program Arménie Terre de Vie are now open ! 5 places are still available.
This year, the program will take place in the village of Sarigyugh (Tavush region) from June 28th to July 26th. Participants aged 18-30 speaking French, English or
Armenian are welcome!
On the ground, AGBU volunteers conduct several missions such as the renovation of a school in a village, the provision of food packages and hygiene products to Artsakh families displaced, the organization of daily activities for the kids in the village and in orphanages, or the conduction of oral hygiene prevention classes. To know more about the program please have a look at the website.
Arménie Terre de Vie is shaped by the interests and drive of volunteers who are looking to discover Armenia and its culture, engage with local communities, and provide assistance to those in need. In short, Arménie Terre de Vie is perfect for those who want to actively participate in building a stronger Armenia.
Launched in 2011 by the AGBU Youth Paris group who were motivated to give back to their homeland, the program runs each summer for 4-weeks. 30 participants live in a designated village in Armenia, focus on a reconstruction project and lead sessions with local children to educate them on healthcare and hygiene.
Aptly named, Arménie Terre de Vie means Armenia, the land of life, as along the way, participants form irreplaceable bonds with one another, the people of Armenia and the country.
