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.

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

Everything we do is guided by our belief in the power of lending a hand. 

Everything we do is a partnership with people who give their sweat equity.


We build, renovate and/or supply equipment to educational facilities, and provide scholarships.

We develop and/or maintain trails, plant trees, and provide public utilities including drinking water and sewage treatment facilities.

We build, renovate, maintain and/or equip 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.

We promote the socio-economic development and empowerment of remote, vulnerable communities through infrastructure building and transfer of new knowledge and skills.
