HDIF's handicrafts bring Armenia’s rich cultural traditions to life. Hailing from more than 10 regions of the country, our producer partners make high quality, one-of-a-kind products with unparalleled skill and talent. Thanks to HDIF’s initiative, vibrant handicraft enterprises have emerged throughout Armenia and our artisans are employed in rewarding jobs that pay approximately 20% above the hourly minimum wage. Our primary goal is to empower women by giving them education and the necessary skills to be successful as independent business entities. This goal is achieved by organizing training on different business-related topics to encourage entrepreneuriship. HDIF is a registered non-governmental organization in the Republic of Armenia.
