VivaCell-MTS to assist installation of heating system in Agarakadzor's kindergarten

The problem of heating the kindergarten in Agarakadzor will be solved thanks to the cooperation between VivaCell-MTS and Foundation for the Protection of Wildlife and Cultural Assets.

It has been included in the network of ecovillages 2018 list.

The kindergarten has been operating for 37 years - since 1981. The building of the institution never had a heating after the demise of the Soviet system. As a temporary solution the building was equipped with stoves to provide conditions for kids. The wood for fuel was provided by the parents, and the head of the village. Later the wooden stoves were replaced with electric ones.
The kindergarten operates only 7-8 months a year due to the lack of local heating system.

Providing the necessary temperature is hard when there is only one electric stove in each group and the bedroom; it is also a matter of safety. Kids often get sick here. The teachers’ work suffers, too: the efficiency of the educational process is poor because of the long breaks.

“If the kindergarten gets the heating we will work the year round and will properly manage to equip the kids for school. We dream of seeing the problem solved one day and to be able to organize the works efficiently,” says the principal of the kindergarten Nakhshun Beglaryan.
