Ողջույն…
Ես Կառլոս Կուլումյանն եմ, ծնվել և մեծացել եմ Սիրիայի Հալեպ քաղաքում: 2014թ.-ին, երբ ավարտեցի 10-րդ դասարանը, ընտանիքով որոշեցինք տեղափոխվել Հայաստան՝ ելնելով պատերազմական իրավիճակից: Երբ եկանք Հայաստան, ես բավական հեշտ ինտեգրվեցի երևանյան կյանքին, քանի որ մեծացել եմ հայրենիքի կարոտով: Ավարտելով միջնակարգ կրթությունս Հայաստանում՝ կատարեցի իմ մանկության երազանքը և ընդունվեցի Ճարտարապետության և շինարարության Հայաստանի ազգային համալսարանի ճարտարապետության ֆակուլտետ:


Այն իմ երազանքն էր, քանի որ մանկուց միշտ սիրել եմ ստեղծագործել, հաճախել եմ նկարչական դասընթացների: Այստեղ շատ եմ սիրում շենքերի և եկեղեցիների ճարտարապետությունը, շենքերի վրա գտնվող արվեստի քանդակները պարզապես շնչում են, ինձ համար դրանք ճարտարապետական եզակի գլուխգործոցներ են: Հուսով եմ՝ ապագայում իմ ներդրումը կունենամ հայկական ճարտարապետության մեջ: Ուստի, այժմ, լինելով չորրորդ կուրսի ուսանող՝ արդեն անցնում եմ մասնագիտական պրակտիկա «Ուրբան Յունիթ» ճարտարապետական և շինարարական կազմակերպությունում՝ «ՀԱԼԵՊ» հայրենակցական բարեսիրական հասարակական կազմակերպության և ԵՀԽ Կլոր սեղան հիմնադրամի կողմից իրականացվող «Երիտասարդների պայծառ ապագա» ծրագրի շրջանակներում:


Պրակտիկայի ընթացքում արդեն մասնակցում եմ շենքերի և շինությունների նախագծմանը, չափագրումներին և այլ աշխատանքներին, ինչի շնորհիվ կիրառում եմ համալսարանական և արտահամալսարանական տարբեր դասընթացների միջոցով ստացած գիտելիքներս, ձեռք բերում նոր գիտելիքներ և հմտություններ: Այս ծրագրի շնորհիվ նաև ծանոթանում եմ մասնագիտությանս աշխատանքային ընթացքին, ընդհանուր միջավայրին և հուսով եմ՝ շուտով ինքնուրույն կկարողանամ պատրաստել ճարտարապետական ամբողջական մի նախագիծ:


«Երիտասարդների պայծառ ապագա» ծրագրի` վճարովի պրակտիկայի բաղադրիչը նպատակասլաց երիտասարդներին հնարավորություն է տալիս ընդգրկվել ՀՀ պետական և մասնավոր ամենահեղինակավոր կառույցների առաքելության և գործունեության մեջ՝ ճանապարհ հարթելով դեպի հաջողակ կարիերա: Վճարովի պրակտիկայի բաղադրիչի միջոցով ուսանողները և շրջանավարտները բարելավում են իրենց հմտությունները՝ աշխատելով տարաբնույթ միջավայրերում և ձեռք բերում մասնագիտական փորձ՝ կողք կողքի աշխատելով փորձառու մասնագետների հետ:
«Երիտասարդների պայծառ ապագա» ծրագրի մեկնարկը տրվել է 2020թ. փետրվարի 1-ին:


“ACT Alliance welcomes the cessation of direct military action on the Armenian-Azerbaijan border last month. We urge the parties of the conflict to continue to respect the ceasefire and de-escalate the situation in order to avoid further casualties. We deeply regret all loss of lives, and offer our sincere condolences . We stand in solidarity with those who lost a loved one in the hostilities.

We recognize the efforts of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Minsk Group Co-Chairs and reiterate our full support to their efforts to peacefully address the situation.

In the current context, with the novel coronavirus pandemic, efforts to ensure peace are more important than ever. As both sides have been badly affected by the pandemic, we are concerned that the threat of violence could exacerbate both the health risks and have heavy socio-economic implications for the citizens living in the border regions. Difficulties with access to water reservoirs and farmland present an increasingly greater risk to the civilians’ livelihood in the area. The hardship faced by civilians reconfirms the need for mutual understanding and cooperation across the border. Such cooperation has to consider the duty to protect all civilians as per commitments to uphold human rights and International Humanitarian Law.

Therefore, ACT Alliance calls for:

The engagement of faith actors and civil society in peacebuilding efforts along the Armenia-Azerbaijan border.

All parties to continue to respect the ceasefire, de-escalate the situation and avoid further casualties.

All parties to respect the duty to protect all civilians as per obligations to uphold human rights and International Humanitarian Law.

All parties to engage in existing opportunities for peaceful negotiations as well as enhanced mechanisms for communication to ensure the safety of all civilians.

Inclusion of local faith actors and civil society from all sides in dialogue processes that seek solutions to the conflict.

7th August 2020”.

Since December, 2019, the CCD NGO has been trying to find ways to provide drinking water to Dovegh village: a number of partner organizations have been involved to fund the construction of the water line. In order to provide drinking water to the residents of Dovegh village, to the public, private and state-owned enterprises on a daily basis, a 2400m long water line is being built, which will connect the Stepanavan-Noyemberyan main water pipeline with the Dovegh village water pipeline. There is an internal drinking water network in the village.

All the mentioned organizations provided financial support for the implementation of the works.

We are happy to introduce you Meghrig Janesian, our next participant of the internship program of the "Bright Future for Youth" project…


I am Meghrig Janesian from Aleppo, Syria. Before moving to Armenia, I studied in Syria, majoring in Electronic Engineering.


I left my studies incomplete as a result of the war and with my family decided to move to Armenia, where I was sure I would find rest and continue my studies, which I had dropped out. In September 2016, I applied to the National Polytechnic University of Armenia the faculty of "Information Technologies" as a 2nd year student. I had chosen this profession taking into account the modernity of the IT sector and the job opportunities, which are being increased day by day.


Throughout academic years, I mastered C# programming, as well as HTML, JavaScript, WordPress programs, by participating in courses organized by “World Vision” Armenia, due to which I improved my professional knowledge.


In 2019 after the graduation of Bachelor's degree, I decided to pursue a career in professional work. To take my first steps, I turned to the professional internship program of the "Bright Future for Youth" project. After an interview and a few assignments, I got an internship at ITHD LLC as a Front End Developer.


During my internship I apply almost all my professional knowledge, day by day I become more skilled, self-confident in my work, as well as gain team working skills. I would like to thank this project for giving young people such an opportunity to lead them to a successful career.

Within the framework of the project, citizens are provided with multi-layer, reusable breathing masks in individual packaging and appropriate to medical standards. Today, people need more spiritual and psychological support, but with a closed face it is impossible to express any emotion, so the volunteers of the Pan-Armenian Youth Union initiated to delineate drawing of the Mother Cathedral of Holy Etchmiadzin on the masks as a symbol of hope and optimism. The Holy Cross of the central dome of the Mother Cathedral of Holy Etchmiadzin was recently consecrated by the Catholicos of All Armenians. That's why this year is probably marked for Armenian Christians as the year of the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin.
