Hayastan All Armenian Fund supports education and low-income families in Tavush Region
Posted on March 04, 2009
The Hayastan All Armenian Fund established a computer lab at the school of Aknaghbyur Village, in Armenia’s Tavush Region. The donated equipment includes five computers, a copier, computer desks, and chairs.

The project, sponsored by Armenia Fund USA, was made possible through a $5,000 contribution by Mr. Laurent Paulac of New York.

The creation of the lab was met with great enthusiasm by the Aknaghbyur school’s students and faculty, who culled their own resources to refurbish the room.

“It is our hope that the new computer lab will significantly enhance learning processes at the Aknaghbyur school,” said Ara Vardanyan, the Hayastan All Armenian Fund’s acting executive director.

The fund implemented an equally vital project in the neighboring village of Ditavan, by providing milch cows to low-income, multi-children families. The initiative was sponsored by the Armenia Fund USA.

Varuzhan, a Ditavan resident whose family was one of three to receive assistance, was overjoyed to report that his cow has already given birth to a calf.
