Dear FAR Friends,

We are thankful that the tense and critical situation we have been following so closely for the past weeks has finally reached a non-violent conclusion. The brave voices and actions of the people in our homeland have truly left us awestruck.

There will be a new government in Armenia, one which for the first time will actually be scrutinized and held accountable. For the people of Armenia have seized ownership of their country, demanding justice and transparency with unprecedented strength and determination.

For more than 28 years, FAR has made empowering Armenia’s next generation of leaders a primary focus of our work. We have always been steadfast in our belief that it is they who would build a better country.

At this critical juncture, when the construction of a new Armenia has just commenced and collective hope is at its zenith, it is more important than ever that we as an organization continue to stand with the people. They need our support as they prepare to face the difficult challenges ahead.

We hope that our friends will continue to partner with us, as they have done since the earliest days of Armenia’s independence. This is, after all, just the beginning of the next chapter in the story of our homeland.

Thank you,
Garnik Nanagoulian
FAR Executive Director
