We believe that the future of Armenia belongs to its youth. We also believe that every child has a right to a good education. We believe that proper education starts from kindergarten. We believe that having essential supplies gives the children the basic elements required to start their education on the right track.
AERF is dedicated in creating the right conditions to provide the best education for every child in Armenia.
AERF provides essential supplies to kindergarten students in Armenia, by traveling and delivering the supplies first-hand. We ensure that 100% of the donations reach the children who need them the most.
AERF was established in 2006 with the goal of traveling to Armavir, Armenia to donate school supplies to kindergarten #7. The success of this project motivated us to go to Armenia every year and support other kindergartens.
The Armenian Educational Relief Fund (AERF) was formed in 2006 by the brothers of Alpha Epsilon Omega to provide essential supplies and other materials to disadvantaged kindergartens in Armenia because we believe the future of Armenia belongs to its youth and that every child has a right to a proper education. AERF was incorporated into the AEO Foundation upon its founding.
The funds raised by AERF have been used to purchase supplies and other materials, such as desks, beds, appliances, backpacks and writing materials, directly in Armenia, thereby supporting the local Armenian economy. In addition, AEO brothers have travelled to Armenia, at their own expense, to purchase and deliver the supplies, thereby ensuring that the funds and supplies are directly implemented and used for their intended purpose.
AERF has raised over $40,000 to supply 8 kindergartens throughout Armenia to support over 700 children per year.
