Today, more than ever, Artsakh needs young people whose ideas are full of innovations. After graduating from the Artsakh State University, I decided to have my contribution in filling the gaps in the educational system and I  applied to the "Teach for  Armenia" program.  Now I teach in the village of Ashan, one of the best villages in the world.
Our interlocutor informed that together with the school students they have developed a project, which is one of the steps of "Teach for Armenia". It is aimed at the development of communities and the activation of community life.
"The goal of our project is to turn our village into a tourist center. This is our first step towards achieving this great goal. We will open a path that will connect the current and former locations of our village. The path will be equipped with guides, posters and signs.
 
 Through this program we try to develop hiking tourism in the community. We plan to carry out the first campaign in the first half of May 2022. On the advice of my students, we named the project "Path to the Future."
 
We clearly mark the desired changes that our community needs; we are shaping our desired future," A. Ghazaryan said, adding that similar projects are being implemented in all the communities where  the teachers of the "Teach for Armenia" program work.
