THE JOINT INITIATIVE OF AGBU YP YEREVAN AND ARMENIAN BLOGGERS IN KARABAKH

AGBU YP Yerevan and Armenian bloggers joint initiative began in Autumn 2010. The main goal of the program was to provide literature to the schools and libraries of Artsakh. Phase 1 of the project was successfully implemented in the public library of the town of Karvatjar and the schools of Nor Verin Shen and Yeghegnut villages. Previously announced fundraising and book collection raised 300,000 AMD and 1300 books. The funds raised was spent on the purchase of encyclopedias, Armenian classic literature, history books, maps and sports items. The program was warmly welcomed by the school students, teachers and administration.

This was the first cooperation of AGBU YPs and Armenian bloggers, who had already implemented similar projects in other schools in Artsakh. The program is of a continuous nature and the next school library to be updated will be in Nor Getashen, Artsakh.
