COAF has undertaken a program designed to improve the quality of education in the communities of rural Armenia and empower students to be active participants in their own education.
Due to COAF's work, village health clinics now have sufficient medical equipment and supplies, and benefit from continuing medical education as well as supportive supervision of the local staff conducted by the COAF physician.
Strengthening and preserving village communities and empowering village residents are key to COAF’s holistic approach to rural development. The Child and Family Support Program aims to build stronger self-reliant social networks and offers a multitude of child-centered services.
Our economic development programs are geared toward increasing each community’s skill base and technical know-how through practical hands-on vocational and business training.
Working with key partners such as the Microsoft Innovation Center (MIC), we have rolled out one of its E-agro platforms, which is a web-based marketplace for agriculture commodities, accessible by mobile phone and PCs, which allows selling and buying agro products from any location in Armenia.
Clean water is one of the most basic building blocks of a healthy community. Working with key partners, COAF has improved the infrastructure in 10 Armenian villages. They now have functioning irrigation systems, which are critical to farming and economic opportunities.
