The project “Return to Sources” marks its 13th anniversary

Since 2005 the Armenian Fund for Sustainable Development (AF4SD) together with the French Office of Migration and Integration (OFII) and Association Arménienne D’Aide Sociale has been implementing the project “Return to Sources” with the aim to support to people who are in irregular situation and want to return to Armenia voluntarily.

Since the launch of the project up to now more than 1700 Armenians have returned to Armenia with voluntary assistance program. Within th framework of the project more than 300 small enterprises were created and 70 vocational trainings were organized. 

Currently the beneficiaries of the voluntary return project have the opportunity to benefit from 3 different projects proposed by the OFII: reintegration through social assistance, reintegration through work and reintegration through an enterprise creation.
