Armenia Development Center
This was a just a dream of several Jaguar Creek staff members, but in May of 1999 construction was begun and through the generosity of one woman and the hard, hot and dirty work of countless volunteers, on November 30, 2001 the Center was completed. On land donated to Jaguar Creek by the Village, the building is owned by Jaguar Creek and its sole purpose is to produce high quality programs which will serve the people of Armenia. Click here for background information about the people and village of Armenia.

Programs occurring at or through the Center include: a Dental Clinic, a Medical Clinic, Literacy and English as a Second Language classes, the establishment of a 3,000 volume Community Library and an Environmental Club, classroom use of the library, book donations and school supply donations. We have had a school graduation ceremony here, as well as meetings of the village council, women's craft group and women's group.

We search out and host government presentations and services like the bi-monthly immunization clinic and the Pesticide Control Board's Safe Use workshops.

With the Center as a base, Mission and Service Groups have poured a church floor and painted it inside and out, built half of another church, built a new classroom for the school, and built a fun, new playground.

Fully supported by Jaguar Creek, the Coordinator, Indalecio Vallejos, also works half-time at Jaguar Creek. A Peace Corps volunteer, volunteers from the various Jaguar Creek programs and residents of Armenia round out the people that make the programs happen.
