Because Education Matters
Renovation after Disasters
School Renovations project started after 1988 earthquake. Initially AEF decided to build and renovate schools in the disaster area. Later AEF decided to include border villages. First, was Krashen village elementary school and kindergarten, then, with the donation of Savey and Ralph Tufenkian Gyumri No 5 Richard Tufenkian School was rebuilt. Prior to AEF’s 50th anniversary, in 1999, the board decided to renovate 50 schools that became reality in two years. AEF has completed over 200 school renovation projects in villages and towns in Armenia, Artsakh and Javakhk. These renovations are made possible with a partnership with our generous donors, many of whom have adopted schools and sponsored the majority of the renovations and ongoing support for the school of their choice.
