On May 28, 1928, in Cairo, Egypt, a group of nine community leaders founded the Hamazkayin Armenian Educational and Cultural Society, a non-profit organization. The objective of Hamazkayin was to provide a sound education to the new generation and to strive toward the preservation of the ethnic identity and cultural heritage of the Armenian people forced to live outside their homeland after the 1915 genocide and the fall, in 1920, of the First Republic of Armenia.

Subsequently, Hamazkayin Chapters were established throughout the Middle East, Europe, the United States, Canada, South America and Armenia.
