Founder’s Note!

HDIF Founder with Goghovit Knits

Timothy David Straight

Founder of Homeland Development Initiative Foundation (HDIF)
Honorary Consul of Norway and Finland in Armenia





Little did I know five years ago when I first considered starting something like HDIF, that we today would have over a dozen booming artisan partner/producer individuals and groups, an e-commerce website selling around the world, exports to half a dozen countries, a waiting list for speaking engagements on social entrepreneurship, a growing professional staff and a breathtaking rate of growth.

But we do and we are.

I could have hardly imagined that we would be members of the Southern Caucasus’ first Impact Hub, and soon to be members of the World Fair Trade Organization.

Breathtaking, right?

Help us help regular Armenians create their own jobs in the regions of Armenia.  Buy, donate, share on social media.  We are proud, we are determined. We are HDIF!
