Security issues continue to affect farming activities of people in Tavush region living in communities along the international border with Azerbaijan. As an alternative to field cultivation, the ICRC piloted a new project in Barekamavan village. Through a detailed economic survey, we identified some of the most vulnerable households and offered them options that matched their needs and capacities.
As a result, 20 families in Barekamavan received beekeeping supplies and livestock to start income-generating activities. Next year, we will continue our project in other border villages of Tavush.
