Hayastan All Armenian Fund donates computers to several institutions in Armenia and ArtsakhThe Hayastan All Armenian Fund donated 120 computers to a multitude of schools, municipalities, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh.
The project, sponsored by Armenian-American benefactor George Asadorian and the U.S.-based Educational Association of Malatia, aims to foster institutional modernization and boost productivity, particularly within the framework of the Hayastan All Armenian Fund’s ongoing educational-assistance efforts and Rural Development Program.
Recipients of the project include major educational institutions such as Yerevan State University, Artsakh State University, and Yerevan State University of Architecture and Construction; elementary and secondary schools (the Khachaturyan Art School in Sisian, Nerkin Karmir School in Tavush, and Our Lady of Armenia Poghossian Educational Center in Gyumri); and rural municipalities in the Tavush Region (Apaga, Choratan, Chinari, Aygedzor, Tavush, Lusahovit, and Norashen).
NGOs that have received computers include the Astghavard, Huys Kyank, and Pilatelpia organizations – all of which are dedicated to improving the lives of disabled children – as well as the UNICEF HIV/AIDS Country Joint Program’s information centers in the Lori and Shirak regions.
“I hope that our fist collaborative effort with the Educational Association of Malatia will grow into a lasting partnership, as our shared goal is to advance educational excellence and sustainable economic development in our homeland,” said Ara Vardanyan, the Hayastan All Armenian Fund’s acting executive director.
Vardanyan’s sentiments were echoed by Mr. Asadorian, who said he is much honored by the fact that two newly established computer labs, at Artsakh State University and Yerevan State University’s Economy Department, will be named after him.
