The Project was initiated by the «TEGH» Psychological and Cultural Foundation in response to the military attack to Tavush border communities in July 2020.
The Project was realized by the TEGH Foundation in partnership with Pahapan Charitable Foundation as part of the EU COVID-19 Solidarity Programme for Eastern Partnership, funded by the EU and the People In Need Charitable Foundation. The Project was actively supported by the regional authorities.
84 children from 7 communities of Tavush region (Artsvaberd, Choratan, Norashen, Nerkin Karmiraghbyur, Tavush, Aygedzor, and Chinari) participated in the Project.
While working with children the specialists applied a variety of psychological techniques including art elements aimed at stimulating the children to formulate and express their experiences, emotions, thoughts and issues more freely.
