Volunteers from the Diaspora visit VivaCell-MTS headquarters

  • by Erik Abrahamyan

  • Friday, August 29, 22:30

 On August 28 VivaCell-MTS hosted a group of young Diaspora Armenian volunteers from different countries aged between 20 and 32 years, who serve as volunteers for an average of 4 months each, and are ready to apply their professional skills in the regions of our country, the press service of the company has told ArmInfo. VivaCell- MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian presented the volunteers with key aspects of VivaCell- MTS' operation, the key values guiding the Company, as well as its strategy in the sphere of corporate responsibility.

VivaCell-MTS pays particular importance and attention to having more Armenians from the Diaspora discover the Homeland. VivaCell-MTS finds that the best way to learn about Armenia is not just to see Armenia as a touristic destination but as a place where one can work as a professional or just to contribute through volunteering in projects aimed at helping different target groups of the society. Discovering Armenia presupposes becoming part of it, feeling the country, getting experience through communicating with people, getting in touch with the daily lives of the people, and much more. It is also important to engage in friendly relationships with peers and create long-lasting personal and business relationships.

"It is quite positive and promising that you made that step and came all the way to visit your Homeland. You can now become the ambassadors of our beautiful Armenia," stated VivaCell- MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian, welcoming the volunteers, who arrived from the United States, the Russian Federation, Syria, Mexico, Lebanon and Canada.

From 2004 onwards with the support of VivaCell-MTS, the Birthright Foundation has organized the volunteering of young Armenians from 32 countries in the regions of Armenia. Ralph Yirikian's story of success was one of the factors triggering the interest among young Armenians from the Diaspora to visit Armenia and engage in different projects.
"No matter where they are, Armenians all over the world should equally take the economic development of Armenia as a priority. Who else should think of the economic development of the country and its well-being, if not us? All of us need to be committed, consistent, and hardworking. We simply need to remember: no country in the world is free from problems.  Success comes to those who strive to get result. We can succeed if we optimistic and rely on the concept of personal and corporate responsibility toward our country," added Ralph Yirikian.

The volunteers shared their impressions on Armenia. The meeting with Ralph Yirikian went in question-answer format covering a wide range of issues. The discussion during the meeting helped the young people make a clearer notion of the business administration and management.
VivaCell-MTS (K-Telecom CJSC) is Armenia's leading telecommunications operator, having the widest 2G/3.75G/4G network reach and spreading a wide range of Voice and Data services all across Armenia. Having the best of the Armenian people interest at heart since its launch on 1st July 2005 and in a short period of time VivaCell-MTS has managed to build a nationwide network and a considerable customer base. VivaCell-MTS drives innovation and aims at always being at the forefront of any development serving the Armenian mobile communications market.  The company follows the guidance provided by ISO 26000 (International Standard of Social Responsibility). 

Mobile TeleSystems OJSC ("MTS") is the leading telecommunications group in Russia and the CIS, offering mobile and fixed voice, broadband, pay TV as well as content and entertainment services in one of the world's fastest growing regions. Including its subsidiaries, the Group services over 100 million mobile subscribers. The Group has been awarded GSM licenses in Russia, Ukraine, Turkmenistan, Armenia and Belarus, a region that boasts a total population of more than 200 million.
