After years of making do with a dilapidated school, the village of Sos, in Artsakh’s Martuni Region, is set to have a new, modern campus, to be built by the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund. The construction of the new facility is co-sponsored by the Armenia Fund US Western Region (through the financial support of benefactor Jerry Turpanjian) and the government of Artsakh.
The planned two-story campus, with a total area of 830 square meters, is designed to accommodate up to 200 students. It will feature spacious classrooms, a library, an infirmary, and a teachers’ room. Also to be built are an adjacent gym and an outdoor sports field and playground. Currently earthwork is being performed on the site.
The school-construction project is the third major development project to be implemented in Sos by the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund. The other two projects, made possible by the French-Armenian community, comprise a new water network, which has provided Sos with around-the-clock access to water, and a newly built, soon-to-open kindergarten.
