Sometime ago, the Ministry of Education of Armenia donated a war-damaged building to the ARS in Hatrout, to be renovated and used for war orphans and the children of families in need of assistance. Soon after, in 1999, the ARS “Sosse” Kindergarten/Day Care Center had opened its doors with a maximum occupancy limit of 75 children between the ages of 3 and 6. Hot meals are served three times a day, warm and secure surroundings and elementary- schooling is provided to these children six days a week, year round. There are 75 enrolled students with 8 teachers, 1 nurse and 2 cooks.
