Return to Hartavan, the first Orange village in Armenia

In the Republic of Armenia, over 50% of the population lives under the poverty threshold. That is one of the reasons why Orange Foundation chose to base the first Orange village in Europe there.

Brigitte Audy, the General Secretary of Orange Foundation went to visit Hartavan.
With the works complete, the inhabitants of this small agricultural village can now make the most of the new health and education infrastructure.

The beneficiaries are now economically and sustainably autonomous thanks to the a milk collection point which has been set up.
