We are a rock/rap band from Ijevan, the capital of Tavush province, some 30 minutes from Sarigyugh. We first heard of Project SARI during the preparations for SԱRI FEST 2019. Not only did we perform at the festival, we were amazed at the efforts of the community to make it a success. The children are incredibly brave, talented and involved. We have been volunteering with the NGO ever since, providing all sorts of assistance to Lucine and her team, from transport to music workshops and disco afternoons in the open field. We love spending time in Sarigyugh. We know everyone by now. This project is a fresh breeze and an inspiration for many.
