TUMO Armenia Spring Appeal

This spring,
let's make a
TUMO Box bloom
in Jermuk.


Education is the seed of sustainable change

Imagine what Armenian teens could accomplish if only they had access to cutting-edge learning opportunities. They could develop crucial skills that would empower them to become unstoppable forces for positive change.

Yet, many teens in remote areas are unable to benefit from innovative tech and design education due to preventable issues like limited infrastructure. TUMO has long addressed this challenge with TUMO Boxes — easy-to-deploy, low-cost educational facilities designed to deliver our groundbreaking program to underserved communities.

This spring, we're renewing our commitment to teens living in Jermuk and inviting our community of supporters to join us in giving them the life-changing gift of a TUMO Box. Every donation is an investment in their success and in the progress of Armenia as a whole.

Why Jermuk?

Located in the scenic yet sparsely populated region of Vayots Dzor, Jermuk is famous for its healing springs and breathtaking nature. But the 2022 shelling has cast a shadow of uncertainty over this beloved destination. Many who once called Jermuk home have been forced to leave, and the sense of risk lingers for both visitors and locals alike.

We believe it's our shared responsibility to invest in Jermuk like never before. Every young person deserves a peaceful upbringing, uninterrupted access to excellent education, and the chance to pursue their dreams without having to leave their hometown. This is why we invite you to join our mission and help bring a TUMO Box to Jermuk. By arming Jermuk's youth with the tools they need to thrive locally, we can empower them to uplift their community and build a brighter future for all.


What exactly is a TUMO Box?

Recycled shipping containers turned after-school educational haven for teens in areas where access to quality education is limited. That's a TUMO Box!

It's our swift, eco-friendly way to extend education to remote teens using solar-powered containers instead of new buildings.

How it works

  • TUMO Boxes act as bridges to remote communities, offering teens a state-of-the-art learning environment where they engage in self-learning across 14 skill areas at locations near their homes.
  • Each Box is connected to a designated TUMO Hub, our main education center.
  • After mastering a self-learning area, teens can join hands-on workshops and intensive learning labs at the nearest TUMO Hub.
  • TUMO covers Box-to-Hub transportation, ensuring vital access to our programs.

Catch up with our progress

Over the past few years, TUMO's reach has grown across Armenia, with Hubs in key cities like Yerevan, Gyumri, Dilijan, Stepanakert, Kapan, and Koghb. We've also set up 32 Boxes to extend our programs to smaller communities around each Hub. In total, we're now reaching over 25,000 young individuals every week throughout Armenia.

In 2023, we achieved a significant milestone by extending our network of Hubs and Boxes to fully cover the Shirak and Tavush regions. This means that our comprehensive educational program is now available to every teenager in these areas, no matter where they live. Currently, 6,450 students are benefitting from our programs in Shirak and Tavush.

However, numbers alone only scratch the surface of what your support has made possible. So, instead of just talking about it, let's show you firsthand:

Where are we headed?

With TUMO Boxes already making a meaningful difference in the communities of Vayk and Areni, and with another one in progress in Shatin, Jermuk is the last piece of the puzzle needed to cover the entire Vayots Dzor region.

Your support is crucial in getting us closer to our goal of bringing TUMO's innovative programs to all 10 regions of Armenia. Together, we can create positive change and empower a new generation of learners and leaders who can uplift our nation.

Join us this spring as we plant the seeds for a TUMO Box in Jermuk and nurture a brighter future for communities across Armenia.
