Helping Schools Around the World

As the pioneer of supporting the Armenian educational movement, the AEF is credited with building and supporting numerous Armenian day schools around the world. From the early years to now, the AEF has led the campaign to discover new ideas and approaches which will result in the improvement of education for Armenian students.
