Birthright Armenia
There are hundreds of examples like these young inspiring women! You can be inspired, too, or you can choose to turn your aspirations into reality
 
 

Since early on of its establishment, Birthright Armenia has helped young Armenians from around the world find meaningful ways to stay engaged in Armenia and Artsakh be it involvement in diverse projects, creating innovative small businesses, or philanthropic initiatives that add long-term value. They have so many inspiring stories to tell, but today, we're highlighting just a few projects led by in-country alumni and current volunteers across the business, non-profit and governmental sectors.

#SheTheAlumna. MeetZarui Karapetyan (Russia, 2018) who decided to open a bakery in Gyumri to introduce international food to Gyumretsis. Nazuk Bakery employs four people and serves as one of the jobsites for hosting in-country Birthright volunteers interested in marketing and food preparation. And then there is Narine Bolachian (Lebanon, 2018), founder of Khachkar, an organization where local youth and volunteers roll up their sleeves and learn hands-on the process of sculpting Armenian cross-stones. Since serving as volunteers in 2013, both Gohar Shahinyan (USA) and Aimee Keushgerian (USA) have launched successful businesses in Armenia. Gohar started her business Galar Vines to promote Armenian wine-making and Aimee started her own line of Zulal wines.

#SheTheVolunteer. Ruzan Khachatryan (Belgium) is working at the Ministry of Justice in the collection of high-quality witness testimonies from those deeply impacted by the Artsakh wars to be used for cases at international courts. There is also Marina Torossian (Argentina) who is volunteering at Homeland Development Initiative Foundation to strengthen entrepreneurship among Armenian women.

There are hundreds of examples like these young inspiring women! You can be inspired, too, every day through the Birthright Armenia Social Media where they share more of their stories.
