STEPANAKERT (Public Radio of Armenia)—The Tumo Center for Creative Technologies launched its newest center in Nagorno-Karabakh’s capital of Stepanakert today, thanks to a partnership between the Simonian Educational Foundation and the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU).

The official opening ceremony of the center was attended by the Presidents of Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh, Serzh Sarkisian and Bako Sahakian.

AGBU will cover all operational costs of the center as well as startup costs within the framework of the TUMOxAGBU partnership, while the government of Nagorno-Karabakh has provided the space for Tumo in a historic building in Stepanakert’s center.

The Stepanakert program is expected to cater to 500 to 1,000 students who will participate twice a week for two hours per session, where they will study animation, filmmaking, web development and game development, as well as other skills such as 3D modeling, computer programming, music, photography and graphic design.

Registration will begin on September 14, and students will begin their time at Tumo during the first week of October. The Tumo Center for Creative Technologies is a free of charge after-school program that started in Yerevan and subsequently opened a location in Dilijan. The TUMOxAGBU partnership has already opened a branch in Gyumri and is expected to spread Tumo to other locations in Armenia and beyond.

    What is Serzh Sarkissian doing in Stepanakert? He must instead be busy with packing his luggage and getting his hidden stolen billions of dollars out of the country if he and his stooges have not done so by this time.
    As for investments in Armenia, this is a noble thing done by other dedicated individuals who love their homeland. Serzh and his alike do not and must not get credit for what others do for Hayastan.
    Just for your information, with all the monies that Serzh Sarkissian, Robert Kocharian and Levon Ter Petrosian have looted, these past and current presidents can revive Armenia’s economy, built housings and create jobs for every one in our homeland. So, who is fooling whom and it is time to see that white is white and black is black and there is nothing else outside this simple reasoning.
    The Genocidal Turks sucked our blood and took our lands and our corrupt leaders are just as guilty as the Turks.
