Dasht community is located in the Armavir province of Armenia. The total
population of the province is 255,861 people, out of which Dasht community
has 800 inhabitants. The secondary, community-based school of Dasht was
built in 1962. Initially the school was envisaged for eight-year education, but
in 1999 it obtained a status of secondary school. It is a one storey building
consisted of two blocks with 15 classrooms. Originally the school has one
block, later the nearby community shop was connected with the main
building. Currently the school has 150 pupils attending.
Since its construction the school has never undergone any basic repair. As a
result, the roof, floor, doors and windows are out of order. Also, the sanitary
units for teachers and pupils are located out of the school building. The
school does not have heating system as well. However, the most urgent is
the reconstruction of the roof, since it could collapse any time.
Recently, with the assistance of the “Hayastan” All-Armenian Fund affiliate in
France new furniture was provided to the school. In particular, the school
received new desks, teacher chairs and tables, bookcases, blackboards and
furniture for the administration rooms, i.e. director’s and teachers’ rooms.
