In Krasni, doctors from Los Angeles are welcomed with open arms
We’re in the village of Krasni, in Artsakh, visiting Mrs. Tsovinar. Her curved back, a result of years of hard work, doesn’t prevent her from being a most gracious host. She hastens to make coffee and serve us fresh walnuts picked from her own tree.

Project made possible by Jean-Marie and Lori Atamian of New York

Talish: Home is where the heart is
“You can say we’re now in little Talish,” Vilen Petrosyan says with a smile as he shows a cluster of temporary residences in Alashan. Petrosyan has been the mayor of Talish for the past 25 years. Today, the communal kitchen, public bath, and administrative buildings of Alashan, a former resort village, have been turned into makeshift homes. Following the April War of 2016, close to 46 families from Talish, totaling 180 residents, have taken refuge in Alashan. Of the rest of Talish’s 500 residents, they’re now scattered across various communities in Artsakh and Armenia. Petrosyan knows exactly where each of his fellow Talish natives has ended up, and assures us that he keeps in touch will all of them.
Building a New Kindergarten for Ijevan
Ijeven is a historic, picturesque town, and the administrative center of northeastern Armenia’s Tavush Region. It has a population of around 21,000. For many
years, Ijevan did not have a proper kindergarten, and the current facility, attended by close to 120 children, is in a state of severe disrepair, determined to be too decrepit for a refurbishment.
In 2017, Armenia Fund began to build a new kindergarten in the center of town.
Reconstruction of Stepanakert School #9
Stepanakert’s School No. 9 (named after the celebrated writer Hovhannes Tumanyan) is a unique institution, as it provides not only primary and secondary education, but also inclusive education for special-needs children and specialized classes for hearing-impaired children. Currently the school is attended by 395 students, including 35 kindergarteners, 27 special-needs children who receive inclusive education, and eight hearing-impaired children. Most of the population of the district where the school is located consists of refugee families that were displaced from Sumgait, Azerbaijan, in 1988.
Construction of drip-irrigation systems in Artsakh
With proceeds from Telethon 2017, Armenia Fund launched the “Fruitful Artsakh” initiative, a multi-year program that stands to revolutionize Artsakh’s agriculture sector.Although Artsakh has vast water resources, most of the water is located underground, while bringing water from rivers and other bodies of water in the north to farmlands in the southeast would be so expensive as to be unfeasible. As a result, only 7 percent of the country’s over 250,000 acres of arable land were cultivated as of 2017. Armenia Fund is addressing this critically important issue through “Fruitful Artsakh,” a comprehensive program that aims to develop the country’s agriculture on an unprecedented scale, by digging deep-water wells and building drip-irrigation systems.
Vardenis-Martakert Highway Opened!
With a total length of 72 miles (116 kilometers), the Vardenis-Martakert Highway is an engineering feat, in view of the numerous construction challenges that were posed by the route’s often difficult terrain. These included a significant stretch of unpaved, dirt-covered road that changed dramatically in width at different intervals and involved as many as 339 sharp turns, and sections that were partially blocked due to landslides or river swells.

In addition to being the backbone of the homeland’s economy, roads and highways are of paramount strategic importance. Today, following our work on the North-South and Goris-Stepanakert highways, among others, we continue to build and renovate roads and highways, helping boost the economies of countless communities and stimulate tourism.

As part of our ongoing rural-development efforts, we create community hubs that improve the lives of residents and further connect them to their land. Our multifunctional community centers, built in villages across Armenia and Artsakh, typically comprise a mayor’s office, a library, a health clinic, a multipurpose event hall, and a computer room.

Water is life. And it’s still in dangerously short supply in rural communities across Armenia and Artsakh, particularly in border regions. Today we continue to build state-of-the-art water networks and pipelines, not only to bring life-giving water to rural households, but boost agricultural output by helping irrigate swaths of arable land.

Armenia Fund has constructed and renovated some of Armenia’s and Artsakh’s most important cultural institutions, from the National Motion Picture Archive to the historic Shushi Central Library. As we remain committed to helping foster cultural excellence, we continue to support establishments that build on a rich and diverse artistic heritage.
Schools & Colleges
Education has been a key priority ever since the inception of Armenia Fund, illustrated by our support of various schools including the Vanadzor Music School and Togh Art School. Today, with an abiding vision of promoting educational advancement, we build, renovate, and modernize schools and colleges throughout the homeland.
As we’re committed to helping transform the Armenian homeland into an agricultural powerhouse, we provide wide-ranging support to farmers, particularly in rural areas. The assistance we provide includes greenhouses, agricultural machinery, dairy equipment, seeds, and livestock, as well as training and technical support.
Public Health & Medicine
With projects including the reconstruction of Stepanakert Hospital and our landmark partnership with Glendale Adventist Medical Center for providing medical assistance to Noyemberyan, we’re dedicated to helping thoroughly modernize Armenian healthcare, through hospital construction, provision of medical equipment, and telemedicine.
In recognition of our war veterans’ invaluable sacrifices, we’re committed to honoring their service and helping ease the daily burdens which they and their families face. Our support encompasses mobility equipment such as wheelchairs, vehicles modified for disabled drivers, and financial assistance, including to families of fallen soldiers.
