Armen PoladianCAMBRIDGE ONTARIO
“I was beyond proud and humbled to have inspired a group of people to share my passion about atp_atp_new.”

Stepan and Susan PiligianWORCESTER, MA
“One of the most beloved aspects of ATP is that it supports the most fundamental expression of patriotism: the protection of the land, water and air we have been blessed with.”
Stepan and Susan have devoted significant funds towards greening Payrur Sevak Village
Sevan and Hovig DirbadrossianCAMBRIDGE ONTARIO
“We got involved because ATP’s mission is different. To plant trees and provide jobs in a country that suffered all types of economic, natural and political disasters is impressive.”
The entire Dirbadrossian family has volunteered with ATP for years and their son Peter starred in the 2014 ATP film Something New.
“We enthusiastically support The Armenia Tree Project because the global benefits are multi-faceted; donors contribute to the economic, social and environmental fiber and prosperity of Armenia.”

Anna AstvatsaturianTurcotte- Westbrook, ME
“Of all my humanitarian projects, this is the most meaningful to me. Together with ATP, I've launched a campaign to celebrate the survival and achievements of the Armenians from Azerbaijan. We will be planting a two-hectare forest in Talin, Armenia to celebrate our community and memorialize the killed and the bulldozed over graves of our loved ones."
Community activist Anna Astvatsaturian Turcotte pledged to raise $15,000 for this project. Anna is asking Armenians worldwide to donate in memory of the martyrs, in honour of friends or family who fled Azerbaijan, and to remember the history of the talented, successful, and often forgotten Armenians of Azerbaijan. The forest will be named in honour of the Armenians from Azerbaijan, in recognition of the 30th anniversary of the anti-Armenian pogroms in Baku.
Paul ArakelyanLos Angeles, CA
“Regardless of how tasty fruit is or how popular it becomes, it owes it to its roots. Know your roots and respect them.”
Paul has donated $10,000 in support of establishing a Legacy Forest in Armavir Village. It is his wish to inspire other people to join him and actively participate in ATP’s tree planting efforts. He has also generously offered to plant a tree for every person that signs on with a policy at Legacy Partners Insurance and Finance Services, LLC.
Gevork Grigoryan, Chairman of Armenian Youth Community on Don, Russia

On April 27th 2019 the Armenian Youth Community on Don organizes a tree planting on the territory of the Armenian Church Surb Astvadtsatsin in the village Bolshie Sali which is mainly populated by Armenians.
