Tumi village is situated 31 km away from the regional administrative center Hadrut, and 67 km from Stepanakert. The population of the village is 768. The main occupation of the population is cattle breeding and gardening. The village has a school with 109 students currently attending. Despite the fact that the roof of the school has been replaced with a new one, the building needs renovation. The school furniture has been provided by Hayastan All Armenian Fund. The kindergarten of Tumi was constructed with financial assistance of NKR Government. The opening ceremony of the kindergarten has been held this year. Hayastan All Armenian Fund has also provided a part of the kindergarten furniture. The village has a small medical center, which also serves as obstetric point. In 2002 it was renovated by financial assistance of “Red Cross”.
Tumi village has a woodworking shop, where brandy barrels are produced. The pipeline of the existing water supply system is in stable condition however the internal distribution network has some problems and therefore the water is not equally distributed. The village roads are pebbled once every two years.
Hayastan All Armenian Fund is building a new, multi-functional community center in Tumi village of Hadrut region. The community center will be a two-story multifunctional building, which will include community administration offices, an events hall, a library, a computer lab and a health care point with a separate entrance. The building will also have a foyer, sanitary units as well as auxiliary facilities. The community center will be fully furnished and provided with computers. Heating and ventilation systems will also be installed.
Community centers are of vital importance to the ongoing social and economic development of rural areas in Armenia and Artsakh. They help streamline public services, foster a more dynamic civic life, and, ultimately, provide residents with one more compelling reason to continue living and working in their hometowns.
The construction of the Tumi community center will effectively tackle a number of long-standing issues for the village making the life of the residents of the community much easier and more comfortable.
