ASF-USA has no direct relationship with the government of Armenia. ASF-USA deals with ASF-Armenia, which has a non-profit status in Armenia and receives tax-exemption from Armenian Government for imported material for manufacturing of school furnishings. Periodically, ASF – Armenia consults with Ministry of Education and Culture in Armenia on specific issues.
When sufficient funds are collected for specific or designated projects, ASF transfers the funds to the ASF account in Armenia. The funds are mainly used to cover costs associated with importing raw material to Armenia, manufacturing labor and transportation to deliver the furnishings to schools in remote areas of Armenia.
