Current Situation

ZatikAvan is located in Arzni, which is ten km north of Yerevan near the Yerevan-Sevan Highway. The farm has both, excellent irrigation and drinking water along with power supplies.
Presently there are only 28 people living in ZatikAvan, many of them children, but in summertime more families will come. They live and work at the farm, where they take care of the animals and fields.


In the last few years we have seen many examples of the successful progress of ZatikAvan. Many people who came to the farm had social problems and were not able to deal with daily life challenges. Through living and working in the village they gained structure in their life, learned skills and got more independence. From these competences they could profit in their future life, even when they left the farm.
