About us

Dilijan Community Center (DCC) is located in Dilijan, Armenia, and was established in 2014 by philanthropists Ruben Vardanyan and Veronika Zonabend.

In June 2020, the Center formalized its presence as the “Dilijan Community Center” NGO, solidifying our commitment to community well-being.

In January 2021, DCC became the 4th Center adopted by DVV International in Armenia expressing its readiness to contribute to the non-formal education of adults. DCC shares DVV International in Armenia’s conviction that non-formal education of adults encourages their participation in cultural, social and economic processes, as well as in sustainable development and poverty reduction programs.
