I remember our first meeting in Yerevan, where we planning an organization to help people of Vanadzor through charitable, cultural and economic activities. I understand that during the last year, our Foundation had already achieved a great deal.
On December 2016, we helped No. 34 Kindergarten in Vanadzor , by providing teachers and stuff with monetary gifts and lunch and gifts and lunch to about 100 pupils. During 2016 and 2017, we helped needy families by distributing around forty large boxes of used clothing and 150 dental brushes and dental creams, some 12 boxes of new cloths, uniforms and sporting goods sent to Vanadzor from USA.
We helped young artists by providing paints, brushes, easels etc.Through the generosity of Mr. Harout Bronozian of USA, FDO established a TV-YouTube station.
FDO established a scholarship fund and helped some students to take professional - university courses. We helped some young people to establish their businesses and distribute their goods. This list can go on and on, but here is not the place to enumerate all of our Foundation's good deeds.

Today we have an over 7 million-strong Diaspora.
Many have stood by Armenia since its independence, representing Armenia at all corners of the globe, participating in the process of building our country in different formats. We are deeply grateful to them and appreciate this approach. It is also a fact that some of you were objectively or subjectively disappointed. What shall we do now: feel hurt and carry on like that? I am convinced that we have no right to be despondent, disappointed, frustrated, and disdainful to each other. It is just illogical and will lead us to a deadlock. Even if we do not have our share of sin, we all have something else we can do.
We need to straighten our back and continue building together the country we all dream about; the country that wakes up every day with firm determination to build, develop and add something new for the sake of its supreme value – the man.
We need an advanced and developed country that will have a gravitational force and will reverse the migration trends and will be able to resist such a painful phenomenon as is the isolation from the community, namely the “emigration from the Diaspora.” On this road, we must be realistic, sincere and constructive, get rid of all kinds of illusions, we must clearly and sincerely assess the expectations and reality of both Armenia and the Diaspora.
We need to agree on our further steps and future visions, evaluate our shortcomings, look forward optimistically, work out and persist.
Everyone can have a direct and immediate role in our development and reform process, regardless of citizenship, position, profession or irrespective of how many days is spent in Homeland: in a word, all those who are not indifferent to the fate of Armenia and wish to participate in the future of their homeland.
