Director of the school Mehpara Jafarova said it was impossible a few months ago to imagine organization of such ceremony here. Because this school where 480 children are trained, more than 100 teachers, trainers and servants work was in unsuitable state. After fundamental repair and reconstruction works implemented here by initiative of Mehriban Aliyeva and due to funds of Heydar Aliyev Foundation the school became a beautiful center. Education building of the school, dining room, dormitory, medical aid points, sport hall and fields, swimming pool, entertainment center, rest corners were fully reconstructed and equipped with modern appliances. The comfortable circumstance created here, high humanist attitude shown by Mrs Aliyeva in every visit towards the children supported the marriage of the youth loving each other for long. Sample of such a great generous work, personal help rendered by Mehriban Aliyeva for the organization of the ceremony and further convenience of the youth deserves the best words and deep gratitude.
