Sasunik village is located in Aragatsotn region of Armenia and was founded in 1960-1961. The original residents of village were mostly immigrants from Western Armenia. Currently, the village also includes Karin territory, which was a home for refugees from Baku. The community now has 3919 residents. The main occupation of the local population is winemaking, cattle breeding and agriculture. In addition, "Armenia Wine" factory is located in the village and it provides more than 100 workplaces for the community members. Unlike other villages, Sasunik does not have high level of immigration. There are two schools in the village with a total of 404 students.
The main issue of the village is the absence of an adequate facility for the community kindergarten. The old kindergarten was located in the center of the village. Built in 1965, the kindergarten functioned until 1998 when the structural dilapidation made the further utilization of the facility impossible.
As the old building of the kindergarten is in fully dilapidated condition, Hayastan All Armenian Fund has made a decision to build a new kindergarten for the village. The new kindergarten is a two storey building designed to accommodate up to 90 children. The first floor consists of facilities and recreation rooms, including bedrooms, dressing rooms, sanitary units, canteen, washing room and storage areas. The second floor has house recreation rooms and bedrooms. It also consist of sanitary units, principal’s office, sport gym and games room. Within the project, area around the new kindergarten is also upgraded.
