Christmas Bazaar 2012 

 What is the Christmas Bazaar?

The Christmas Bazaar is our main fundraising event of the year. This year we have invited all the Embassies in Yerevan to introduce their countries through their products and national customs. For craftsmen and women, it is an excellent opportunity to promote their goods. 

Who is involved?

The International Women’s Association of Yerevan as the main organizer, the international community, foreign embassies and their staff, local and foreign artists and craftspeople. 

Who does what? 

All embassies or representations of foreign countries are invited to set up stands to sell their typical national products (food and other goods). The IWAY organisation is responsible for the entire event: before and on the day itself, including preparation of the venue, decoration, tombola, etc. 

What happens with the money raised? 

All profit from the Bazaar each year is used to support recognized charitable organizations all over Armenia. The recipients of our financial help are carefully selected and their needs assessed by the club’s Board before deciding who will benefit from these funds.

The Recipient of IWAY Charity Funds this year is the Full Life (Liarzhek Kyank) Nongovernmental Organization, to support Full Life's project called "Investing in Children for a Better Future!" aimed at improving the lives of children and families from Stepanavan and nine surrounding villages of the Lori region.  The funds will allow 50 children with disabilities or from economically disadvantaged families to take part in supplementary education and life skills classes organised by the Full Life NGO.
