Advancing rural communities through improvements to education and healthcare, economic development and village life.

COAF Mission

The Children of Armenia Fund is a non-profit, non-governmental organization founded in 2003. Our community-based, comprehensive approach to reducing rural poverty has helped Armenian village youth access the resources to achieve and in turn, give back to their communities and the world.

Why Armenia

Nestled in the cradle of civilization, and despite centuries of persecution and genocide, Armenians have emerged as global leaders and innovators. However, due to immense hardships and lack of opportunity, Armenians in the homeland are emigrating at an alarming rate. Our work aims to transform the lives of these rural children – to empower a generation, and a country.
