Dr. Neshan Tabibian and his son Dr. Hagop Tabibian(of Burbank, California) , Associate Professor at the UCLA Medical School have made a donation of $35,000. to rehabilitate the Christian Education Building of Dzovinar in Geghargunik Mars of Armenia for the use of over 100 children who daily come for Christian Education instruction.
Fr. Kevork Ter Parseghyan, the Parish Priest in charge of this Christian Education Project started teaching the students in a home in Dzovinar. As the number of students grew the city gave the Project a building that needed a great deal of repair to make it usable. Over the years parishioners of St. Paul Armenian church and other parishes in the United States helped to fund some improvements to the building and the play yard.
Dr. Neshan Tabibian visited Dzovinar and was very impressed with how the children were learning under difficult conditions and as a result he and his son decided to create a modern and safe environment for the children to learn in every day after school. With the generous $35,000. contribution that the Dr.’s made in the past year the project truly came to reality. The painting and repair of all floors and walls, windows, electrical, etc. quickly took place. Once that phase was completed, then desks, chairs, computers, bookcases and all other furniture needed to make the classrooms and meeting hall totally usable were placed in the building in their appropriate rooms. Today, each day after school students from elementary to high school age gather to use the facilities to learn more about their Armenian Christian beliefs.
