Aznavour

Foundation

CO-FOUNDERS

It is with great joy that I announce today the creation of the “Aznavour Foundation” in Armenia, co-founded with my son Nicolas Aznavour. The Aznavour Foundation will pursue my ongoing charitable activities since the terrible earthquake of 1988. Its mission will be to continue to support vulnerable populations in Armenia and to create a museum in the “Charles Aznavour House” in Yerevan. This museum will host cultural and educational events and become a major attraction in Yerevan. This initiative is a testament to my commitment for the future of Armenia, which I hope will encourage the involvement of the diaspora and attract many visitors from all over the world.

I have made this decision with Serenity after seeing the wonderful educational projects, historic rehabilitations and new infrastructures that have been carried out in recent years throughout Armenia. We must all join forces for the development of our homeland and ensure that our youth is given the opportunity to accomplish their dreams at home surrounded by their loved ones.

I am proud and honoured that my father has bestowed upon me this great responsibility and that I will help implement his projects in Armenia. Regardless of the obstacles our ancestors have faced, our roots have run strong and deep for millennials and it is our responsibility to tend them.
