JMF has supported community development projects and activities since its establishment, having applied different approaches to community development and supported communities and community based organizations through grants and direct initiatives.
In 2005, JMF developed a unique Community Mobilization Initiative (CMI) Model designed to empower Armenian communities to find solutions to socio-economic problems within their communities through the mobilization of internal and external human and financial resources. The CMI model continues to outline JMF’s strategies and mechanisms for Community Based Development Programs.
