10th Year of Partnership. Armenia Marriott Hotel Yerevan Builds a Home with Fuller Center for Housing Armenia

img_6219It is already the 10th year that Armenia Marriott Hotel Yerevan joins forces with Fuller Center for Housing Armenia team with the highest sense of corporate social responsibility and gives a hand up to a family in need of decent housing by helping build their dream home.

On 20 August, 2016 Armenia Marriott Hotel Yerevan staff, led by the General Manager Hendrik Beye, joined Fuller Center for Housing Armenia team in the village of Sisavan, Ararat region to help build a home for Aloyan family.

“Marriott’s Spirit to serve makes our culture more vibrant, our business stronger and the world a better place. Investing in the communities where we do business is at the core of Marriott’s Spirit To Serve Our Communities corporate social responsibility strategy. Our commitment to society blends financial contributions with in-kind giving of products and services, and the volunteer service of our associates around the world. Now the time has come to put our actions to another Spirit to Serve our communities event together with Fuller Center for Housing Armenia. ‘’, said Armenia Marriott Hotel Yerevan General Manager Hendrik Beye.

The Aloyans are a family of 11. Sargis and his wife, Anie, together with their 2 children live with  Sargis’s parents and brothers’ families – 11 people in a three-room-house. The family started building a house for Sargis and his family 4 years ago.

“I could not even imagine that buiding a home could be  such a memorable and happy process. I have dreamed of having a home long time. I could not even imagine that other people, not our relatives or friends, would come and do the work of a week  in a day. Thank you,” said Sarkis, the family father.

Perhaps the most desirable dream of each family is having a home. It was nice to see children’s enthusiasm, the great excitement of adults and the commitment of the loyal partner of Fuller Center for Housing Armenia to help another family in need of decent housing.

Last year the Armenia Marriott Hotel Yerevan team helped build Fuller Center for Housing Armenia’s 450th home.  By the end of the year the number will be increased by 100.
