2016 is a year of celebration for Ayb. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the birth of idea of the Ayb Club and the Ayb Educational Foundation. Ten years ago, a group of individuals, concerned about our country’s welfare and the future of our children, people who consider their own accomplishments as results of education and wish to unite around a common effort to create a lasting thing, made the decision to fulfill their dream.
Throughout its 10 years of work, the Ayb Foundation has realized over 20 educational programs and initiatives that have become prototypes and have contributed to the development of the overall education system. The most significant and large-scale projects include Ayb School and Dilijan Central School, the National Program for Educational Excellence along with the new educational program Araratian Baccalaureate, and beloved and well-known international school competitions (Kangaroo – Math for All, Russian Bear Cub – Linguistics for All, Meghu – Armenian Language for All, etc.).
In total, thanks to Ayb, USD 21.118.503 have been channeled towards the implementation of educational programs in Armenia and Artsakh (throughout 2007-2015).
The real wealth of Ayb are the people who have united around the idea of transforming our lives and future through education. Today the Ayb Club unites 39 like-minded people from different corners of the world, and the list of Ayb’s benefactors comprises over 200 donors and supporters from different countries.
