HDIF works to initiate, facilitate, and nurture sustainable economic opportunities in rural villages, towns, and cities throughout Armenia as well as vulnerable groups. HDIF creates jobs that pay above minimum wage in Armenian communities and commits to regional economic development.
According to a report published by the Asian Development Bank in 2017, 25.7% of Armenia’s population lives below the national poverty line, while 1/3 of the population is considered poor.
Our primary goal is to empower women by giving them the education and necessary skills to be successful as independent business operators. This goal is achieved by organizing training on different business-related topics to encourage entrepreneurship.
HDIF is a registered non-governmental organization in the Republic of Armenia.
