Funded by the Armenian Missionary Association of Australia, the AMAA’s Hagop and Lydia Baghdikian Kindergarten in Stepanakert and Rev. Dr. Movses Janbazian Kindergarten in Martakert were renovated and furnished in late 2018.
On May 11 2019, the plaques were officially unveiled for the refurbished schools by the President and Executive Director of the Armenian Missionary Association of Australia, Rev. Dr. Krikor Youmshajekian in the presence of Mr. Stuart McMillan, Past President of Uniting Church Australia, and Rev. Simon Hansford, Moderator of NSW and ACT Synod of Uniting Church Australia.
The one-story Janbazian KG in Martakert is designed to accommodate 70 children. It now has an adequate heating system, new windows and doors, and bathrooms. Interior and exterior projects have also been implemented. The Kindergarten also has new furniture which helps provide up to date educational conditions for the children of Martakert.
The Baghdikian KG in Stepanakert is a two-story building which houses 120 children. The fences were renovated, the grounds were asphalted, and some renovation work was done inside the KG building.
