We've Reached 25% of our Goal

MER DOON NEEDS A VAN!! This year, we are celebrating our 10th anniversary and we have never owned a vehicle. We aren't looking for anything fancy...a simple, used van will do. We have done our homework and researched the costs. A 15-passenger, used van costs about $15,000 in Armenia or Georgia. The good news is that we've secured an anonymous donor who has offered to give the first $10,000! What does Mer Doon need a van for? Basically, for EVERYTHING. We will use a van to transport our girls to and from their college and university classes, internships and jobs, vocational training, and community activities. In addition, we will use the van to take our girls on pilgrimages to the ancient, religious sites throughout Armenia and Artsakh. A van will also be useful to our staff for errands, food and supplies, and meetings in Yerevan. For the past 10 years, our staff and girls have been spending money on buses and taxis. We'd like to start our next decade with our own vehicle. Please donate TODAY, NOW, RIGHT AWAY, ASAP!! Our goal is to raise $5,000 by October 31, 2016. We hope to have a shiny, used van parked outside of Mer Doon by the end of this year.
