Sponsored by British-Armenian community, new kindergarten in Sasunik to open within daysSasunik, a village in Armenia’s Aragatsotn Region, has a brand-new kindergarten, thanks to the sponsorship of the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund’s British affiliate, with additional support from the mayor’s office of Sasunik.
Fully furnished the two-story facility will open its doors to Sasunik’s close to 100 kindergarteners within a few days.
The construction of the kindergarten was a long-awaited gift to the community. Mayor Arman Margaryan says that the village, which has a population of 4,000, has not had a proper kindergarten since 1998. Children have been attending kindergarten in a converted classroom inside the community school, while there has been no facility whatsoever for preschoolers. Few local families are able to send their young children to the nearest kindergarten outside Sasunik, in the town of Ashtarak.
“We will no longer have to take our kids to the Ashtarak kindergarten — which is both costly and time-consuming,” said a delighted local young mother during our visit in Sasunik.
The Hayastan All-Armenian Fund’s British affiliate sponsors projects primarily in the spheres of education and healthcare. “True to the adage ‘a sound mind in a sound body,’ the education and health of our children are what will secure the continued progress of our homeland,” says Armineh Carapeti, chairperson of the fund’s British affiliate and a longtime supporter of major development initiatives in Armenia and Artsakh.
