  • Resettlement As True Guarantee Of Rebuilding The Motherland


    Azat Artsakh - Republic of Nagorno Karabakh (NKR)

    "The settlement of Nagorni Karabakh territories of strategic
    importance is a national problem therefore the world-spread Armenians
    are interested in the regulation of the problem," said the chairman of
    the public organization "The Promised Land" Vahram Gevorgian. Since
    2003 the organization has directed its activities towards the
    implementation of the settlement of Artsakh. In 2003with the
    assistance of Armenian benefactors from America the school building
    was built and furnished in the historical village Tsar 20 km from the
    region Karvachar (now Shahoumian). The school of Tsar started
    operating from October 23, 2003. Presently nine families live in the
    village. "The construction of the school means the revival of the
    village. The building of the school was necessary as many families
    refused to settle here for the absence of school. I hope after the
    opening of the school the flow of settlers will grow," mentioned V!
    ahram Gevorgian. In historical Tsar there were three churches. One of
    them was ruined by the Azerbaijanis, and the stones were used to build
    an Azerbaijani school. The other two churches were turned into
    cattle-sheds. "The PromisedLand" intends to reconstruct the churches
    and found a scientific research center in the Azerbaijani school built
    on the Armenian khachcars. A film about Tsar was shot which was shown
    in a number of foreign countries, an as a result the funding of school
    building. In the military village Araler the school building was ready
    on September 8, 2003 but it was opened later, on March 1, 2004. The
    school was built and furnished again by foreign benefactors. The
    school has27 pupils. Before the children of the officers had to go to
    school in the village Arakel of Hadrout region situated 15 km
    far. Presently a small hospital is being built in Araler, which will
    be for both the soldiers settling the village and the other
    settlers. In the! village Knaravan of the region Shahoumian it is
    planned to bu! ild a school, the village administration building, a
    club and a surgery in 2004. Twelve housed have been built in Knaravan,
    this year this number will grow. The nursery school was built in
    Yeghegnut, which will start operating in one or two months. "There is
    a big project for the resettlement of the village of Arevshat. For six
    years already the settlers have been living in hard social
    conditions. In 2004 it is planned to build the building of the village
    administration, a surgery, 8 houses," mentioned V. Gevorgian adding
    many new settlers left the village because of the indifference of
    competent bodies. Unfortunately, the same situation was in
    Tsamdzor. The settlement of the village was carried out by the public
    organization "France-Karabakh" and because of the indifference of the
    competent body emigration started from this strategic
    settlement. According to V. Gevorgian, to stop the emigration from the
    village there is a project to repair th! e school building, etc. "We
    have also a program of economic development for the mentioned
    settlements. Settlement does not only mean building. First of all the
    social problems of the settlers should be solved: the problem of work
    and employment, etc. According to the agreement with benefactors, a
    sheep-breeding center will be opened in the village, we have farming
    projects, etc.," mentioned the head of the organization, and added
    that in some villages cultural projects will be brought into being as
    well. In the village Ijevanatun the "Old Inn" used to operate before
    providing the trade with Iran. The building was passed to the
    organization for ten years, and it is planned to open a center of
    historical and cultural research on the liberation territories. "We
    have the plan of repairing the school building of the village
    Arakel. The school was built by the organization "France-Karabakh" in
    1994. In 2004 we ! must implement the construction of the nursery
    schoolin Talis! h and the settlement of the village Akn," said the
    head of the organization "The Promised Land" Vahan Gevorgian.
