COAF Smart Center Visit

We visited the COAF smartcenter in Lori province, Armenia, where hundreds of children are receiving a quality education.

Over the course of the last year, Adrianople Group has been consulting with the Children of Armenia Fund (COAF) about the feasibility of a new special economic zone in the Lori province of Armenia.

Last week, AG sent a team to visit the COAF SMART Center in Lori for their Charitable Fund Summit. While preparing to deliver a presentation on the application of SEZs in Armenia, our team had the chance to tour the Center’s facilities. There, we were fortunate to interact with the staff and the children, and further gain a sense of the Center’s role in the surrounding community.

All of our representatives were extremely impressed with the SMART Center, not only in terms of its ongoing positive impact on the region, but also in terms of its leaders’ vision for the future. We would like to share some of our photos from the trip and encourage our readers to check out COAF’s website. Stay tuned for future updates regarding AG’s continued collaboration with COAF.
