About the Event and the Armenian Memorial Faith Build:
In the Words from The Armenian Family Support Services (AFSS)
This project will commemorate the Armenian Genocide Centennial by giving back to our community and help build homes for the less fortunate. It will be our way of giving thanks to Canada for its help to Armenians during and after the Genocide.
In 2006, the Armenian Family Support Services (AFSS), Holy Trinity Armenian Church, started a collaborative and first of its kind initiative with Habitat for Humanity Greater Toronto Area called the “Armenian Memorial Faith Build” which annually has commemorated the Armenian Genocide while making a difference in our local communities. Since we started this initiative, over 130 participants raised over $14,000 for HFH(Habitat for Humanity) Toronto.
Once again, we are preparing for a Memorial Build in April 2015. This year being the Centennial year of the Armenian Genocide, we are targeting 100 youth to participate over a period of 2 Saturdays to take part in the build. This initiative will be part of the Armenian Genocide Centennial Events.
We hope you will join us and be a part of this milestone. We need to remember and honour those who perished 100 years ago in the first genocide of the 20th Century.
