SURPRISE HOLIDAY GIFT TO BAVRA’S SCHOOLCHILDREN

New York, NY — Christmas arrived early this year for the schoolchildren of Bavra, a village in Armenia’s Shirak Region, as the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund made a surprise gift to their school by providing it with new furniture and computers. The gift was sponsored by the fund’s Argentinean affiliate, through the financial support of benefactor Nshan Devejian of Argentina.

As the school welcomed the present during a jubilant community event, principal Armen Vardanyan wished everyone a happy new year on behalf of the teachers and students, and said, “We are extremely grateful for this wonderful present, and promise our benefactors that on their next visit they will be pleasantly surprised by our students’ knowledge and academic progress.”

In turn, a representative of the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund promised to deliver a letter of gratitude from the school’s 74 students, as well as a handicraft created by them, to Nshan Devejian.

Devejian has also sponsored the construction of a multipurpose community center in Bavra, which has a population of about 650. Slated to open in the spring of 2014, the state-of-the-art facility will feature an administrative center, a clinic, a library, an events hall, and a computer room.
