Celebrating Five Years
On November 13, WSC celebrated its fifth anniversary with partners and in-country donors at the Tufenkian Heritage Hotel in Yerevan. It was a time to reflect on the center’s various achievements and hurdles over the last five years as well as thank all those who have supported numerous women in breaking free of the cycle of violence. The event began with a welcoming address by Executive Director Maro Matosian, followe d by a short film that showcased the center’s work. Tufenkian Foundation Executive Director Antranig Kasbarian then reflected on WSC’s origins as a program founded by the Tufenkian Foundation together with USAID and the Armenian International Women’s Association and how the small organization went above and beyond everyone’s expectations to establish itself as the premier center for domestic violence service provision.
