Founded in 1915 as the Near East Relief, it was the second organization to be chartered by a congressional act. It organized the first modern large-scale humanitarian effort during the Armenian Genocide. Today, the Near East Foundation strives to build more sustainable and inclusive communities in the Middle East and Africa through education, community organization, and economic development.
