Our Mission
Many Armenians in Armenia, Artsakh and abroad are searching for a way to contribute their time, skills and ideas towards the rebuilding and development of our Motherland or are already actively working towards that goal. Our mission is to help such people and organizations find each other. We aim to create opportunities for interested people and organizations to collaborate, strengthen and grow existing projects as well as to establish new joint projects (non-profit or commercial) in their chosen thematic areas.
