#LEVELUP FROM STUDENT TO COACH
Meet Gayane. She’s a learning coach at our TUMO Box in Sevan. Back in 2018, she had to travel to our Dilijan center twice a week to master skills like coding. Now that the TUMO Armenia campaign is underway, her peers have access to their own TUMO Box in Sevan.
Our campaign will grant 80,000 teens across Armenia and Artsakh weekly access to the same learning opportunities as our current TUMOians. You can help us build a network of TUMO Hubs and Boxes nationwide by donating to our campaign. We can only make this happen together, one step at a time.
It was TUMO at first sight when trustees of the John and Hasmik Mgrdichian foundation Lysa Grigorian and Gary Hampar walked into our headquarters in Yerevan. Read about how one of our earliest and biggest supporters sponsored our Gyumri hub, TUMO Koghb, and TUMO Studios.
Since the end of 2021, we have opened new TUMO boxes in Vayk, Sevan, Kapan, and the first one in Artsakh, in the city of Martakert!
We’re excited to share that our next boxes are headed towards Artik and Maralik, in the Shirak region, and Martuni and Askeran in Artsakh.
The $15.5M left to raise will be matched by the Akilian Family and the Armenian General Benevolent Union, getting us to our $50M goal. Become a part of this important initiative by donating to our campaign.
You may have heard that we’re big on renovating culturally significant buildings – remember Gyumri’s opera house that was repurposed into a TUMO hub? Our Hub in Kapan will be located in the historic Kapan train station! Until the construction is complete and the building operating, local TUMOians will attend the Kapan box.
It all started with one teen’s dream of visiting TUMO from the village of Lernagog! Watch this group of young Armenians share their impressions about the special day they spent at our flagship center in Yerevan and what they’re excited to learn at the future box in Karakert, located ten minutes away from Lernagog, in the region of Armavir. Donate now and give them the chance to have a mini-TUMO in their own community.
The TUMO Armenia campaign is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Yemenidjian family, the Armenian General Benevolent Union, Elie and Elzbieta Akilian, and many other donors.
