NEWS Press Releases Hayastan All-Armenian Fund donates 40,000 notebooks to Yerevan schools

Hayastan All-Armenian Fund donates 40,000 notebooks to Yerevan schools
On the eve of the new academic year, the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund distributed 40,000 student notebooks to more than 20 schools in Yerevan, including the No. 8 School, a specialized institution serving children with speech disorders.

The project was initiated and financed by the RAR company of Tehran, whose director, Arin Karimian, expressed delight for providing this type of assistance to schools across the Armenian capital.

At the No. 8 School, quantities of the donated notebooks were presented during a ceremony held in honor of the project’s benefactors. The festive event was attended by Ara Vardanyan, executive director of the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund; Gayane Soghomonyan, head of the Yerevan Municipality’s Education Department; Arin Karimian and his wife; and a large gathering of students, parents, and teachers.

In addition to the notebooks, the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund presented on its behalf five illustrated encyclopedias gifted to the school library, and Ara Vardanyan announced that the fund will soon donate five computers to the school.

“Our aim with this project was not only to assist Yerevan’s student population, but bring back the classic school notebooks which were once the norm in Armenia,” said Arin Karimian in his remarks. “Whereas today the market is awash with student notebooks featuring an enormous variety of images on their covers, many not suitable for young children, I think it’s far more fitting and educational to have our students use notebooks which feature, for instance, the Armenian alphabet on their covers.”

Karimian also stated that while the notebook-distribution project is the first school-support initiative financed by the RAR, it will not be the last.

The No. 8 School relocated to the present campus less than a year ago. Commenting on the institution’s day-to-day operations, its principal said that it continues to grapple with a host of logistical issues, including a lack of adequate amenities and equipment, and expressed hope that donors would come to support the administration’s ongoing bid to make a number of vital improvements.

“We are very pleased that Mr. Karimian and other young Iranian-Armenian industrialists at the RAR company are willing to provide assistance to schools in the homeland,” Vardanyan said. “And it’s quite gratifying that they have chosen the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund as the conduit for their support.”
