STEPANAKERT (ArmRadio)–The Hayastan All Armenian Fund is financing the development of a state-of-the-art website for Artsakh Public Television and Radio.
Through the four-month project, the company will be provided with two Internet servers and a computer system, while technical and administrative staff will receive training in web-content generation and site management.
The initiative was launched following a technical-needs assessment earlier this year conducted by a Hayastan All Armenian Fund working group.
When the project is completed in June 2009, the site will feature programs broadcast by Artsakh Public Television and Radio, as well as breaking news and information about Nagorno Karabakh. The site’s audio and video clips will also be accessible through Google and YouTube.
“With its support to this vital project, the Hayastan All Armenian Fund will enable Nagorno Karabakh to have its voice heard across the world,” said Ara Vardanyan, the fund’s acting executive director.
The continued development of Artsakh Public Television and Radio has been a priority for the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund. In December 2008, it donated a variety of cutting-edge technical equipment to TV and Radio station, significantly enhancing its newsgathering capabilities and broadcast quality.
The project, worth $100,000, is sponsored by the Armenia Fund U.S. Western Region.
