Share the Love 2019 for the Berd Women's Resource Center
HDIF's longtime producer partner, Berd Women's Resource Center Foundation (BWRCF), is EXPANDING! Their business has taken off, and now Berd's handicraft enterprise and production of organic fruit preserves are ready to go global.
The BWRCF just purchased a building with lots more space, but needs LOTS OF WORK! HDIF-USA is crowdfunding to raise the money needed to renovate their building and prepare an organic garden.
Our goal of $14,000 will pay for:
1. Complete plumbing, irrigation, septic, and water system.
2. Complete electrical system.
3. Heating, air conditioning, and ventilation.
4. Plaster for all interior walls.
5. All windows and flooring.
6. All doors and fixtures.
This is an incredible story of courage and perseverance for the city of Berd, which is located in Northern Armenia and lies close to the border with Azerbaijan. This area is often in the crossfire of the conflict between the two countries.
