Founder's note

Little did I know five years ago when I first considered starting something like HDIF, that we today would have over a dozen booming artisan partner/producer individuals and groups, an e-commerce website selling around the world, exports to half a dozen countries, a waiting list for speaking engagements on social entrepreneurship, a growing professional staff and a breathtaking rate of growth.
-
But we do and we are.
-
I could have hardly imagined that we would be members of the Southern Caucasus’ first Impact Hub, and soon to be members of the World Fair Trade Organization.
-
Breathtaking, right?
-
Help us help Armenians create their own jobs.  Buy, donate, share on social media.  We are proud, we are determined. We are HDIF!
