The Hayastan All-Armenian Fund has begun construction of a new school in Gishi, a village in Nagorno Karabakh’s Martuni Region. The project is sponsored by the Vardanyan Family Foundation and the government of Artsakh, the press office of the Fund says.
Designed to accommodate 300 students, the future campus will have 12 classrooms, a computer room, and laboratories for the study of chemistry, physics, and biology. The school will also feature a sizeable gym, a first-aid room, a library, an events hall, and a cafeteria with a 140-person capacity.
“Of the wide range of projects implemented by the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund, I would be hard-pressed to single out the most important ones,” said Ara Vardanyan, the fund’s executive director. “I think all of our projects are urgently needed. Still, it’s worth noting that our school-building initiatives hold a special place in our hearts, and continue to be carried out with particular care and a sense of responsibility with respect to our present and future generations.”
Gishi’s existing school, which is attended by 220 students, is in a state of disrepair. Its two crumbling buildings were constructed in 1930 and 1968, respectively.
Commenting on the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund project, Gishi mayor Gevorg Balayan expressed his strong belief that the new school will help foster educational excellence, by improving the quality of the pedagogical and learning processes alike.
