The mission of the association is to grant people with disabilities full participation in Armenian life and society, through physical, social, and psychological rehabilitation, protection of human rights, creation of income-generating businesses, and sports development and training.


To ensure an accessible and inclusive community in which people with disabilities are respected and are given equal opportunities.

Our History

Pyunic was created in February 1989 to provide programs and services to the children who were disabled by the December 7, 1988 earthquake in Armenia, and it was formally registered as a charitable organization in 1990.

Our programs create opportunities so that people with disabilities can take their rightful place in their communities. Pyunic is a cross-disability organization serving people with a broad range of disabilities, including physical disabilities, amputations, deafness, Down syndrome, and autism spectrum disorders. More than seventy volunteers and twenty staff members provide year-round services and programs, particularly to children and young adults.
