GeoProMining Gold (is part of the diversified international group of mining companies GeoProMining – GPM or the Company) has opened a multimedia classroom in School No.3 of the village of Ararat as part of the corporate programme supporting educational institutions in Armenia. Promoting education and supporting local communities in the regions where the company operates are among the priorities of the corporate social responsibility programme of GeoProMining “Resources for Good”.

The Company supports introduction of advanced teaching technologies in educational institutions in Armenia. The multimedia classroom in the village of Ararat is the third such project. Earlier, similar classrooms were opened in the city of Armavir (a joint project with South-Caucasian Railway) and in the school No. 4 of Vardenis. Multimedia technologies help to integrate several courses into one teaching process and expand the information base. The use of visuals and interaction increase the interest of students to the education process, and as a result its effectiveness. Rossotrudnichestvo assists in using these classrooms for interactive lessons of Russian and English languages.

“GeoProMining pays special attention to the development of education in the regions of its presence. Our programmes are not limited to secondary education. Starting this September our company is providing support to five students in getting professional higher education at universities in Armenia and Russia. By raising the level of education we advance the quality of life in local communities where many residents are employees of our company and their families. We are pleased to contribute to the sustainable development of the regions where our company operates”, said GPM Gold General Director Vladimir Kozlov.
