Volunteers from the Diaspora visit VivaCell-MTS headquarters

VivaCell-MTS hosted a group of young Diaspora Armenian volunteers from different countries aged between 20 and 32 years, who serve as volunteers for an average of 4 months each, and are ready to apply their professional skills in the regions of our country. VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian presented the volunteers with key aspects of VivaCell-MTS’ operation, the key values guiding the Company, as well as its strategy in the sphere of corporate responsibility.

From 2004 onwards with the support of VivaCell-MTS, the Birthright Foundation has organized the volunteering of young Armenians from 32 countries in the regions of Armenia. Ralph Yirikian’s story of success was one of the factors triggering the interest among young Armenians from the Diaspora to visit Armenia and engage in different projects.

VivaCell-MTS pays particular importance and attention to having more Armenians from the Diaspora discover the Homeland. VivaCell-MTS finds that the best way to learn about Armenia is not just to see Armenia as a touristic destination but as a place where one can work as a professional or just to contribute through volunteering in projects aimed at helping different target groups of the society. Discovering Armenia presupposes becoming part of it, feeling the country, getting experience through communicating with people, getting in touch with the daily lives of the people, and much more. It is also important to engage in friendly relationships with peers and create long-lasting personal and business relationships.

“It is quite positive and promising that you made that step and came all the way to visit your Homeland. No matter where they are, Armenians all over the world should equally be committed, consistent, and hardworking for the well-being of our country. Success comes to those who strive to get result. We can succeed if we optimistic and rely on the concept of personal and corporate responsibility toward our country,” VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian said.

The volunteers shared their impressions on Armenia. The meeting with Ralph Yirikian went in question-answer format covering a wide range of issues. The discussion during the meeting helped the young people make a clearer notion of the business administration and management.
