      "Repat Armenia" at RAU: sharing and empowering                                                 

On October 28 a group of bright repatriates to Armenia from different countries in the world came to the Russian-Armenian University to meet our students and discuss the issue of repatriation. Each of them shared their personal story of coming back to their roots and facing the challenge of a dramatic move in their lives. Some have been living here for many years now, others have just moved. Some started global business projects long ago and are pretty famous on the Armenian market and even abroad, others have local small businesses with the ambitions to keep growing. Some remained in the fields they have majored in, others radically change it. But one thing uniting all of them is the motivation and passion to bring positive change into the Armenian reality.
 
Our students addressed their questions and concerns to the speakers and had a chance to discuss those with the guests.
 
All of the speakers along with the other over 700 repatriates found different type of help and support from the “Repat Armenia” foundation. Its Executive Director, Vartan Marashlyan, has stressed that they organize tours all around the world to reach out to our compatriots living abroad and suggesting assistance in the latter’s possible plans of moving to Armenia.
There are many volunteer vacancies at the “Repat Armenia” foundation and the team is looking for motivated and hard-working young people. “Repat Armenia” Team will be back to our University in the next semester. So if you did not make it this time, make sure not to miss such an opportunity in the spring.
