Viva-MTS supports to farmers in the border village of Vahan

Viva-MTS and the Foundation of Wildlife and Cultural Assets supported the farmer in a joint program in the village of Vahan of Gegharkunik region with the help of electric fences.

An electric fence works with high voltage and low amperage. As a result, the animals are not physically harmed, but get unpleasant experience, so, they no longer approach the fenced areas. Farmers say the joint program of Viva-MTS and the Foundation for the Preservation of Wildlife and Cultural Assets are effective. The real result of this is to practice animal husbandry without losing animals. The mobility of electric fences allows to change the pasture of the animals if needed.

Viva-MTS has consistently demonstrated its commitment to supporting the village since 2008 when there was a necessity to construct a gas pipeline there. Later in 2014, a solar water heater was installed in the village kindergarten in collaboration with the Foundation for the Preservation of Wildlife and Cultural Assets (FPWC). In 2015 and 2016, works were carried out to ensure lighting of the village. A 94-bulb LED exterior lighting system was installed. As a result, about 2700-meter area was provided with lighting.

The principle of not separating business interest and social responsibility is at the core of Armenia’s leading telecommunication operator’s activities.
