On June 28th, 4 COAF beneficiary kids took part in TUMO Center for Creative Technologies’ TEDxKidsYerevan. Out of 20 youth participants, four were COAF-supported.
One of our COAF kids, Erik Yeghinyan, was a key speaker at the event. An alum of the Aflatoun Social-Finance Education Program, he delivered a motivational speech. His words about the environment and deforestation issues struck a chord with the crowd.
His involvement with the Aflatoun group’s social projects, which were devoted to environmental preservation efforts, seemed to spark his remarkable initiative to speak out on the subject. His work with the Aflatoun program implemented measures to preserve the Lori region of Armenia, which he referred to as the “lungs of Armenia.”
