We believe that all human beings should be given the opportunity to better their circumstances and be able to live at standards much higher than the poverty line.

Everything we do, we do it because we believe in the power of lending a hand. And the power of partnership. 

Everything we do, we do it with people who give their sweat equity.


The Yalkezian Foundation conducts humanitarian work in Armenia and surrounding areas, for the advancement of education, preservation of the environment, promotion of health, and relief of poverty.

Advancing education is a a priority for us. We build, renovate and/or supply equipment to educational facilities, and provide scholarships.

The foundation works to preserve and protect the environment by developing and/or maintaining trails, planting trees, and providing public utilities including drinking water and sewage treatment facilities.

We promote health by building, renovating, maintaining and/or equipping hospitals, clinics, nursing homes and mental health and social services facilities. We provide training for mental health and social services professionals, and support for disabled children and youth to receive medical help to overcome their disabilities.

The Yalkezian Foundation strives to relieve poverty by promoting the socio-economic development and empowerment of remote, vulnerable communities through infrastructure building and transfer of new knowledge and skills.
