The Support to Education

In the framework of the Support to Education Project, the Heydar Aliyev Foundation annually supplies first grade students from the families displaced as a result of Armenia’s aggression against Azerbaijan with school-bags and stationery. Regular support by new textbooks and other training aids is provided to the Azerbaijani-populated areas of neighboring Georgia and the schools in Gakh, Zagatala and Balakan Districts of Azerbaijan with the Georgian language of tuition. Numerous books and publications donated by a number of international organizations and companies, such as World Vision, JP Morgan, ExxonMobil, Russia’s Pushkin Library Foundation, etc., were distributed among the school libraries, children homes and boarding schools. In addition to this, the Foundation publishes new educative materials and distributes them among the educational institutions. In 2007-2008, in the framework of the Support to Education Project, 140 posters (institutional wall sheets) were printed with the Heydar Aliyev Foundation’s support as visual aids to be donated to the schools all over the country. A number of posters on various subjects were published for the first time in the Azerbaijani language to upgrade the level of training, with 10 thousand copies for each poster, and the overall number reaching 1.4 million.


Renovation of pre-school institutions as the first stage of education is also conducted as part of the Project. In 2005-2012, about 20 kindergartens were thoroughly repaired and re-equipped in the country. In 2008, the Foundation issued a whole range of posters, multimedia disks, boards, panels, games and other visual aids for pre-school institutions. These aids are regularly distributed among the institutions in question.


A number of schools in Georgia, Egypt, Romania, the Russian Federation, Holland and Pakistan were either renovated or built anew in the framework of the Support to Education Project. Construction of the girl school in Pakistan’s Muzaffarabad city’s Rara area is among the most successful and significant accomplishments in this field.


Another accomplishment of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation was the new building of computer training center erected in 2008 in the District of Dmanisi, Georgia. General School No.7 in Marneuli, Secondary School no.73 named after M.F.Akhundzadeh in Tbilisi, School No.3 in Gardabani and International School No.2 in Dmanisi were renovated with support from the Heydar Aliyev Foundation.


In 2010, General School No.78 in Ulyanovsk, the Russian Federation, was thoroughly renovated. In 2011, new school were built in Hassan Hojali and Jafali villages of Bolnisi district, and put into operation.
