The ecumenical Armenia Round Table programme was set up on the initiative of the Armenian Apostolic Church and of the World Council of Churches, with the participation of the Armenian Catholic and Armenian Evangelical Churches.
The Round Table Programme began in 1996 (office established in 1997) and now works under the patronage of His Holiness Karekin II Supreme Partiarch and Catholicos of All Armenians.
Ever since the ART has brought together Armenian churches, local non-governmental organizations, and church-related partners with a shared commitment to working together to address some of the fundamental social and economic problems of the country.
In November 2004 the ART was registered as an independent legal entity in the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Armenia under the name World Council of Churches Armenia Inter-Church Charitable Round Table Foundation.
