Setting the vision


We have supported various initiatives aimed at preserving religious landmarks of Armenian heritage worldwide and raising awareness on history of the Armenian Nation.


Along with restoration of the church in Parpi village of Aragatsotn region, a monument to commemorate the victims of the Great Patriotic War and the Artsakh War was built.


Odzun village is one of the oldest settlements in Armenia which is famous for its unique architectural monument — the monastery. There is no exact information about the date of the construction of Odzun monastery, but judging by the building structure and other features of the architecture it can be assumed that it was founded in the 7th century.


The Armenian Church of Saint Gregory the Illuminator is the oldest Christian church in Singapore, located at Hill Street in the Museum Planning Area, within the Central Area. The church was completed in 1835 and consecrated the next year. It was the spiritual home of the small but influential Armenian community living in Singapore during the colonial period and continues to serve as a reminder of their contributions to the development of Singapore over the years.


The temple complex of the Novo- Nakhichevanskaya and Russian Diocese of the Armenian Apostolic Church is the largest spiritual-educational facility of the Armenian Apostolic Church outside of Armenia.

Dear Visitor,

We are glad you are interested in the activities of the IDeA Foundation.

On this platform, you can learn about two-decades long thought, passion, commitment and hard work — all in pursuit of a more prosperous Armenia. The road has been long and reflections many. But we managed to achieve to a point where our work has left its mark on the lives of millions of people and we are really proud of it.

Our accomplishments are the fruit of a collective effort by hundreds of thousands of promoters and volunteers, tens of thousands of donors and supporters, hundreds of colleagues and dozens of founding partners. Together, we have shown what wonderous things can be achieved when people strive for realization of a common goal.

Allow our family, who was lucky enough to witness these remarkable achievements from the beginning, to express our sincere gratitude to numerous wonderful, caring, purposeful people and organizations that made all these achievements possible. We have the honor to present their successes and express our gratitude to them.

We have tried to present the key landmarks of our journey to a brighter Armenia, to chart the lessons learned, and some of the new approaches and initiatives they have forged — the 700 projects over the last 20 years.

We hope that learning about these works will be as pleasant for you as it is for us to tell about them.

But, more importantly, we would like to see you among those Armenians who will continue this path together with us in the future.

If a single community of like-minded people working towards the realization of a common vision of the future can achieve such a result, imagine what kind of changes can be made if the efforts of the entire nation were directed towards creation. Together we can dream.

And, together, we can make our dreams come true.

Thank You,

Ruben Vardanyan and Veronika Zonabend
