Charles Aznavour classroom inaugurated in Armenian town school through joint efforts of Stepan Gishyan Charity Foundation and French-Armenian Development Foundation
YEREVAN, NOVEMBER 5, ARMENPRESS. A classroom for French language courses named after the late French-Armenian singer Charles Aznavour has been inaugurated in the #11 public school of Hrazdan, a town 45km northeast of the capital of Yerevan.
The project has been realized as result of cooperation between the French-Armenian Development Foundation and the Stepan Gishyan Charity Foundation.
The French-Armenian Development Foundation is one of the five winners of a grant program announced by the Stepan Gishyan Charity Foundation.
“Students will learn French for two hours in all days of the week in this classroom, and those who will want to deepen their knowledge will be able to participate in additional classes, free of charge,” director of the Stepan Gishyan Charity Foundation Anna Gishyan said.
She said that they’ve brought books from France and that the classroom has modern equipment – creating the best conditions for learning the language.
The Stepan Gishyan Charity Foundation was founded in 2015 by ACBA Credit Agricole Bank, the French Credit Agricole Bank, the Credit Agricole National Federation and the Gishyan family.
