REVITALIZE GYUMRI THROUGH HERITAGE TOURISM

2018 marks the 30th anniversary of the Spitak earthquake in Gyumri, when 25,000 people died, 140,000 were injured and 16,000 rescued from collapsed buildings.

Today the community’s population and economic health are in decline and rebuilding skills scarce. Few organizations have invested efforts into capacity building for Armenian nationals. Join AiP and community members to revitalize Gyumri through heritage tourism.

DUNANS BRIDGE AND CASTLE CONSERVATION

Learn hands-on skills as you join this bridge and castle conservation project and help save the historic bridge and other structures on the grounds of Dunans castle.

Conservation at Dunans is underway thanks to a high-energy group of AiP jammers. September volunteers were superstars, completing major repairs on both the historic stone steps and upper bridge walls.

This is only the beginning for this valuable joint venture in the beautiful western highlands of Scotland.
