MARAR is a ten-day patriotic program enriched by sports, educational and army training elements with the participation of experienced specialists, providing an opportunity to strengthen links with the motherland through:
- trips to non-touristic places of Armenia;
- exciting tactical games;
- seminars with interesting people;
- intense cultural program;
- acquaintance with compatriots from different corners of the world as well as with local people.
The high level of training ensures that the participants are fully immersed in the program and provides an opportunity to see and appreciate Armenia and its people with their own eyes.
In its activities, the MARAR program focuses on the world's best projects, such as the Federation of Military Tactical Games (FCTI) in Russia, which organizes spectacular games with the participation of various teams, and the Israeli “Sar-El” Volunteer Program, which places emphasis on education and strengthening of Jewish identity.

In 2018, at the third training camp, program participants met with the Armenian Minister of Defense David Tonoyan. The Minister appreciated the potential of the program, emphasized the importance of strengthening relations between Armenia and the Diaspora, and supported the initiative that not only Armenians, but also representatives of other nationalities take part in the program. The programs such as “MARAR” bring international relations to a new, high-quality level.
David Tonoyan wished the program success, development and that in future the MARAR teams take part in various tactical games of international level.
“We aimed at creating a project through which our Diaspora youth will see Armenia with their own eyes. The goal of the project is to strengthen ties between the Diaspora and Armenia, as well as to repatriate young people and professionals from various fields”.
