About Birthright Armenia

Birthright Armenia was founded in 2003 by Edele Hovnanian with the belief that it is every Armenian's birthright to not only see Armenia, but also experience their homeland via an enriching, hands-on, life-changing experience. Right from the start they believed that an immersion program in Armenia with volunteer service at its core, especially one that encourages longer-term stays, would foster a greater sense of commitment to things Armenians and result in inspired and well-prepared young people to lead the next generation. Their alums are leaders with a deeper spiritual, cultural and intellectual understanding and appreciation of the Armenian people, its history, the importance of language, and with a true desire to focus on the collective future.
