Watch How FAR Changed His Life


Armen didn’t want foster parents. At 13 years old, Armen had been abandoned by both of his biological parents and the other family members who had taken him in had eventually been unable to care for him. Family stability was foreign to him, to the point that he had given up on it completely.

Then he met his foster parents, Marine and Karo. Today, Armen and his younger brother Artak live happy lives with the couple thanks to the FAR Children’s Center, which placed the boys in their care. Watch and learn more about their story.


The children’s center is a pioneer in Armenia’s foster care system. You can read more about its role as a leader in child protection in our 2021 Annual Report, now available exclusively online.
