The Heydar Aliyev Foundation has been established on
the grounds of the nation’s wish to express its esteem for the memory of Heydar
Aliyev, who entered our history as a builder of an independent state, and the
necessity of reflecting his rich moral heritage, underlining the importance for
our country of the philosophy of Azerbaijanism and cultivating the national
statehood ideas in our children.
Starting its activity since 2004, the Heydar Aliyev
Foundation has been actively
participating in building a new society and contributing to the social and
economic development of the country, by implementing various projects in
spheres such as education, public health, culture, sports, science and
technology, environment, and social and other spheres.
President of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation is Azerbaijan's First Lady, UNESCO and ISESCO Goodwill Ambassador Mehriban Aliyeva.
