Currently, thanks to the assistance of the Indian government, computer classrooms are being established in all 50 secondary schools of the Vayots Dzor Region, benefiting close to 6,800 students. The classrooms will be provided with all necessary furniture and equipment, comprising a total of 347 computers and 50 printers. Also within the framework of the project, technicians from India will link every classroom to the Internet and create local networks, providing online access to students and teachers alike. As importantly, teachers and the schools’ IT personnel will receive advanced trainings, made possible through a partnership between the Vayots Dzor regional administration and the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund.
“This is the second phase of our joint project with the government of India,” Vardanyan said. “The first phase, which was implemented in 2012, resulted in the establishment of computer classrooms at 72 schools in the Tavush Region.” Vardanyan added that he hopes the far-reaching collaboration between the fund and the Indian government will be ongoing.
Today, the students of Artsni, a village in Armenia’s Lori Region, study at a school that was extensively renovated and transformed into a beautiful campus in 2010 through the sponsorship of the Indian government.
