Armenia: EU-funded kindergarten renovation completed in Yerevan

On 19 July, the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the city of Yerevan announced the completion of earthquake safety and energy efficiency upgrades at kindergarten 49 in the Armenian capital.

The kindergarten modernisation works included insulating the walls, retrofitting the buildings with new windows and doors, and improving the heating, cooling and ventilation systems, which reduced wasteful energy use and improved the comfort and safety of staff and children. The seismic resistance of the kindergarten has also been improved. The kindergarten was also adapted for people with reduced mobility, improving the social inclusion of children and staff with disabilities.

The works were implemented as a part of the Yerevan energy efficiency project that benefits from a €15 million investment from the EIB and the multi-donor Eastern Europe Energy Efficiency and Environment Partnership (E5P) fund. The project aims to improve the energy efficiency, seismic stability and sanitary conditions of about 60 kindergartens in the capital city of Armenia.
