They need to master science and technology in order to adequately present themselves to the world, to take our place and position. I am convinced that children studying in Armat should make a great contribution to the economic strengthening of Georgia and to the noble work of representing Javakhk, as well as to the preservation of the Armenian identity, ”said Mr. Sahakyan.

According to Armen Garslyan, the benefactor of the Ninotsminda "ArMat" laboratory, the most dangerous thing in the world is an ignorant person, therefore the existence and role of such educational institutions is very important. 218464259_342740800890839_8207699737916256197_n-1024x683“One of our goals is to prevent the residents of Javakhk from going abroad to earn money, but in the modern information world, even in the most remote village, they earn money sitting at home. And Armat laboratories will contribute to this ”.

According to Sedrak Vardanyan, head of the ArMat engineering laboratories program, laboratories solve many problems in Javakhk. “Laboratories solve not only vocational guidance, but also socio-economic problems. By teaching in these laboratories, children can further secure their prosperous future by having the necessary professions. “We set a task both in Armenia and in Javakhk to make Armat accessible to all children of all communities,” said Mr. Vardanyan and expressed hope that by the end of the year the number of laboratories in Javakhk will reach 10.

We’ve completed one of our youth projects “Bridge of Cooperation between the Youth of Javakhk, Diaspora and RA regions”

"Bridge of Cooperation between the Youth of Javakhk, Diaspora and RA regions" occurred from August 31 to September 11. Due to the current conditions of the Covid-19 pandemic, the project was implemented on the "Zoom" online platform. The aim of the project was to build a bridge of dialogue between the youth of the Javakhk, Diaspora, RA regions, to strengthen the Armenia-Diaspora-Javakhk connection, unify the Armenian youth around a common idea. In the modern world, the technological development gives us an opportunity to have contribution in the development of your own homeland even if you are on the other side of the world, to use our knowledge and opportunities for the benefit of the homeland. But if we are not aware of its problems and needs, our contribution will be incomplete, perhaps not targeted. The young people of Armenian Diaspora need to know Armenia and Javakhk as well, to be acquainted with the available opportunities in their homeland, communicate with inhabitants, to be acquainted with their daily life, needs and wants. Therefore, we can assume that the main goals of the project were to create a platform of joint cooperation, which will contribute to the establishment of a strong connection between them, their capacity to serve the development of Armenia-Javakhk-Diaspora interconnection. The young people from the RA regions, Diaspora and Javakhk have participated in courses, seminars-discussions, online meetings. Trainings lasted 11 days; we had many famous and experienced speakers. Our speakers were specially selected experts; each of them was a successful professional in their field. The most important point is that our specialists were willing to share their experience and knowledge from the relevant fields. Through these meetings, the young people gained theoretical knowledge and practical skills which they will be able to serve for the benefit of strengthening the homeland. As a result we have a common platform which was created during the project, and which will provide further communication between Javakhk,  Diaspora,  Armenian youth living in the regions, also this can become a basis for continual cooperation, implementation of joint projects. 50 young people from Javakhk, Diaspora and the regions of Armenia have participated in our training and 41 of them have received certificates.
