Goodwill Dinner

Goodwill Dinner is a charity initiative aimed at providing talented Armenian students with scholarships to get quality educationin Yerevan, Armenia. We organize online actions of charity dinners with famous and interesting persons. The winners of the actions donate money for the scholarship fund of Ayb High School and get their chance to dine with the person they chose. For the coming three years, all funds raised within Goodwill Dinner will cover the tuition of students from Armenian regions and Artsakh studying at Ayb High School.
