Hovsep Himidian of Argentina provides support to Yerevan’s No. 8 Special SchoolWith the financial support of Hayastan All-Armenian Fund benefactor Hovsep Himidian of Argentina, Yerevan’s No. 8 Special School has а culinary classroom fully renovated and equipped with kitchen appliances, tools, and furniture.
The No. 8 Special School, which is also a boarding school, provides special education, therapy, and vocational training to 120 children between the ages of six and 18 with speech disorders or autism. The facility also provides vocational training to children with disabilities from various Armenian orphanages.
Commenting on the refurbished classroom, Varduhi Kheboyan, the school’s principal, said, “Following a one-year, basic culinary course in this bright and beautiful classroom, our students will receive certificates, which will both boost their self-confidence and help them find jobs.”
Recently the school hosted a visit by Rosita Youssefian, chair of the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund’s Argentinean affiliate, who had traveled to Yerevan for an up-close look at the renovated classroom. She promised to relay to Mr. Himidian her great impressions of the culinary classroom. During her visit, Youssefian also took note of the current need for refurbishing the school’s gym and providing the facility with a small bus.
From 2011, the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund has donated stationery, encyclopedias and computers to the school.
