Mission

To forge a culture of philanthropy and social justice within Armenian and Diasporan youth and thereby, to strengthen our communities. As we strive to improve the quality of life for Armenia’s most underprivileged, we simultaneously work to empower Armenian youth who wish to take change into their own hands while giving agency to those in the Diaspora who seek to make a profound difference in Armenian communities. Armenians in local towns and villages often face problems with distinct solutions.

We just need to say “ayo!” to the ideas they propose to engage Armenians both in Hayastan and the Diaspora in our quest to introduce long-term solutions. Ayo! is the platform to engage and support Armenians all over the world in causes that bring about sustainable relief. We hope, by our own example, to excite and encourage others to face all challenges by saying, “Ayo! We can change this!” We, at Ayo!, are men and women of action and the time for action is now.

Marta Batmasian

Having been born and raised in Istanbul as a minority Armenian, Marta Batmasian’s dream was to immigrate to the U.S. where everyone is given the opportunity to pursue their dreams. She has founded Ayo! to give this same opportunity to the new generation of Armenians. Marta believes that Armenians are capable of taking their future into their own hands and believes that Ayo! will provide them the financial, logistical, and moral support they need to realize their potential.

Marta has been involved and excelled in the field of education, business, politics, and community activities. She has received numerous awards, including the “Volunteer Woman of the Year” by the Junior League of Boca Raton and “Bridge Builder of the Year” for LEAH, the League for Educational Awareness of the Holocaust. Marta is a member of the Board of Directors of the Fund for Armenian Relief.

The Fund for Armenian Relief

The Fund for Armenian Relief, Ayo!’s parent organization, is a U.S. humanitarian organization that provides short-term emergency relief and long-term programs focusing on child protection, economic development, education, health care, and social services. FAR was founded in response to the devastating earthquake that struck Gyumri in 1988.
