Rural schools in Armenia receive assistance from Britain and France
Posted on September 05, 2012
With support from its French affiliate, the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund has established a computer classroom in the school of Lusagyugh, a village in Armenia’s Armavir Region. The initiative, worth close to 5,500 euros, was sponsored by the Ministry of Culture and Communication of France, on the suggestion of Michel Terrot, the ministry’s Rhone-Department representative. The project comprises the provision of five computers, a multifunction printer, and furniture.

The Lusagyugh school has also received assistance in March 2011, when the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund, with the financial support of the French-Armenian community, furnished ten classrooms at the campus.

In addition to the Lusagyugh school, the schools of the villages of Bavra and Saragyugh, in Armenia’s Shirak Region, have received assistance from the fund’s British affiliate this month. Through this initiative, worth close to U.S. $4,000, a total of 111 students have been provided with various school supplies, including school bags and stationery.

The Hayastan All-Armenian Fund’s British and French affiliates continue to sponsor such projects in tandem with major educational and health initiatives, implemented in Armenia and Artsakh alike.
