The Tufenkian Foundation has recently built a new school in the village of Arajamough in Karabagh, an area that was brought to ruins by the war. Children from 2 villages attend this school. The school and, indeed, the villages, are in desperate need of books. No village has a library and the population depends solely on the school library. Books are not published in Karabagh and they have to be brought from Armenia – a 6 hour drive.
Anahid Ugurlayan, an avid marathon runner and supporter of the Tufenkian Foundation, is running in the Hamptons Marathon on October 2, 2010 to raise money to help us secure books and educational materials for the Arajamough school. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
