In the aftermath of the 2020 war, COAF took swift action to support the Artsakh community during challenging times. We offered temporary shelter, psychosocial support, speech therapy, education, and healthcare to those in need. We also provided 13 families, including 59 children, with permanent homes in the villages of Dsegh and Debet.
The recent events in Artsakh have cast a long shadow over Armenia, leading to a humanitarian crisis with the exodus of 100,000 Armenians of which 30,000 are children. This human and children’s tragedy urgently demands collective action.
The goal of Project HOPE is to provide humanitarian assistance to forcibly displaced populations from Artsakh, focusing on the provision of quality housing, establishment of inclusive learning environments, psychosocial support, and capacity building.
Housing: We will be collaborating with the Armenian Government to provide both temporary and permanent housing for displaced people from Artsakh, ensuring that they have a safe place to call home.
Opportunities in Education: Education remains our top priority. We will engage Artsakh’s children in our educational programs at the COAF SMART Center in Lori, as well as extend our scholarship and career development programs, granting youth from Artsakh access to higher education and career development opportunities.
Psychosocial & Health Support: We’re expanding our team of specialists at our Child & Family Centers in the Lori and Armavir regions to offer psychological, speech therapy, and social work services to displaced people from Artsakh. Mobile teams will bring this support where it’s needed most. Additionally, children and adults will have access to free dental care, along with primary healthcare services at our regional health center in Lori’s Dsegh village.
Empowerment through Capacity Building: Our commitment extends to empowering professionals. Through retraining programs, we aim to enhance the capacity of educators who have relocated to the Lori and Armavir regions, creating job opportunities for teachers and instructors in these areas.
Understanding the magnitude of one-time contributions, we’re inviting you to join our monthly contribution initiative. A consistent, smaller donation each month can cascade into an ocean of change, allowing COAF to drive lasting transformations in the communities it touches.
