Makur Yerevan

Below, Argam demonstrates a perfect "Before" and "After"...

Seeing all the trash all over Yerevan sparks something in an individual. Growing up in the States, society teaches you to not liter and to care for your communities cleanliness. Participating in Markur Yerevan made it possible for us Diasporans, in combination with native Armenians, to help in the cleaning of the streets of our home country. It felt good to see the streets of Yerevan clean after lugging out bags and bags of trash and seeing the locals applaud our efforts and promise not to liter. I know that if more locals see that others are contributing to a clean Yereven they too will be inspired to do the same and therefore have a clean capital that we can be proud of.
