The Children of Armenia Fund (COAF) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that uses community-led approaches to reduce rural poverty, with a particular focus on children. Since the inception of its programs in 2004, COAF has funded and implemented education, health, social, and economic development programs serving more than 25,000 people in rural villages of Armenia. Each person impacted represents one of the more than one billion people living in poverty, and the methods used in Armenia can be replicated in other communities, where children are most vulnerable.

  Make Armenia Healthy One Meal

Arteni School’s Afeyan Elementary Wing Opens with VivaCell-MTS Creativity Lab

COAF wants to include Aragatsavan's school in its highly successful cafeteria and brushadrome program by building a space on the campus where children can have a healthy hot meal and brush their teeth every day for a year. Read More.
