/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Hayastan All Armenian Fund’s second major
school-furniture project, launched in August of this year, is nearing
completion. The beneficiaries of the initiative are 85 schools across
Artsakh – including those in the cities of Stepanakert and Shushi as
well as the regions of Askeran, Martakert, Martuni, Hadrut, Shahumyan,
and Kashatagh, the Fund said in a press release.

The campuses will receive various furniture items essential to teachers
and students. The project is sponsored by the Armenia Fund U.S. Western
Region. The donated furniture, which includes more than 1,000 teacher
chairs and 1,300 cabinets, is being manufactured by the HATM company
of Gyumri, Armenia. To date a large proportion of the order has been
fulfilled and shipped to Artsakh. The furniture will be distributed
by the Artsakh Ministry of Education, with priority given to schools
that need immediate assistance.

"High-quality school amenities are of course a prerequisite to
a productive learning environment," said Ara Vardanyan, executive
director of the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund. "The new furniture donated
to schools in Artsakh will help ensure creature comforts and ultimately
play its role in contributing to scholastic achievement."

Earlier this year, the Hayastan All Armenian Fund’s French affiliate
sponsored the provision of new furniture to more than 100 schools in
Artsakh. The initiative has resulted in comfortable and well-appointed
classrooms as well as science and computer labs for over 10,000
