The Tufenkian Foundation donates technical equipment to the Yeznik Mozian vocational school in Artsakh
STEPANAKERT â Yeznik Mozian Vocational School in Artsakh, which was forced to move its operations from Shushi to Stepanakert after last year’s war, recently received a donation of new computers, projectors and technical equipment from the Tufenkian Foundation . On June 14, an intimate reception was held at the new school house to mark the occasion.
Established in 2015, the Yeznik Mozian vocational school was built in Shushi by the Hayastan All Armenian Fund and is named after the Franco-Armenian benefactor Yeznik Mozian, whose bequest provided the necessary funds for the project. The school was built to accommodate up to 450 students from various regions of Artsakh.
âThe Tufenkian Foundation has always supported and supported the school, both in Shushi and now in Stepanakert, and will continue to do so,â said Medina Hovhannisyan, Tufenkian Foundation project manager, during Stepanakert’s reception . The donation was made in partnership with the Swiss branch of the General Armenian Charitable Union (UGAB).
School principal Narine Ishkhanyan said that although the losses after the war are substantial, the school is proud to continue its mission. âOur school has lost everything: computers, televisions, interactive whiteboards and large quantities of other technical materials and equipment,â she explained. “That’s why we turned to the Tufenkian Foundation with a request for help in any way we can.” The Foundation has agreed to donate several computers, video projectors, televisions and other equipment necessary for the school.
The Yeznik Mozian Vocational School curriculum focuses on the preparation of expert craftsmen, including metalworkers, roofers, welders, blacksmiths, masons, painters, tilers and polishers, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, locksmiths and HVAC technicians. The school’s faculty members are trained and accredited in France. The school also has a long-term cooperation agreement with a French vocational school to ensure compliance with European educational standards.
