Project Background

Aygepar is one of the 16 rural communities of Shamshadin, a region of Tavush, with a population of 648. Like most other villages along the Armenia-Azerbaijan border, Aygepar has a school and a kindergarten.


To make a living, villagers cultivate the land next to their houses since there is no other suitable or safe land for cultivation. Sniper fire makes it unsafe for villagers to go and work in fields. The village is very close to the border - with one house just 100 meters away from Azerbaijan. The kindergarten and the school buildings are about 300 meters away. Ceasefire violations occur as frequently as every three weeks and civilian buildings and schools are regularly targeted in such cases. Schools have been damaged several times.


The bullets penetrate the windows of the building, putting students at risk of being fatally hurt. The playground in front of the school is too dangerous to use because of the gunfire. A hree-meter-high wall around the school area will protect the school from bullets and allow the children to safely use their playground.

Project Goal

To protect the school of the border village of Aygepar and allow children to learn in a safe environment.
