OUR STORY

hans_1.png

In 2017, Hans Keifer, an Armenian American and owner of Bellfree Contractors, a professional trail-building company based in Los Angeles, came to Armenia as an international expert to help design the TCT and also to lead and train volunteers on the TCT trail project.

As an avid trail user himself, he saw so much potential and desperate need to develop the trail infrastructure throughout Armenia and Artsakh, and had the bright idea to start his own nonprofit.

Hans recruited the TFC team from the enthusiastic and passionate local volunteers during the TCT project.

Since its inception, TFC has partnered with 12 organizations and developed 80 trails throughout Armenia and Artsakh, totaling over 1000 km of hiking and biking trails, with many more to come!

TFC was started in September 2017
