Community Shield Azerbaijan (Baku)

Welcome to Community Shield Azerbaijan (Baku)

Community Shield Azerbaijan (Baku) (CSA for short) is a charitable organisation established in 2002 by a small group of volunteers to help the Leprosarium at Umbaki.

Since then we have continued to support the Leprosarium at Umbaki as well as a number of other institutions often in desperate need of assistance. By helping them, we have transformed the lives of many disadvantaged people in Azerbaijan. CSA has been involved in 12 major projects and has raised more than $600,000.

Community Shield Azerbaijan (Baku) is not-for-profit, non-political and is run entirely by volunteers. All donations go in their entirety to the activities we support as there are no overheads.

Our two main activities are: Renovation Projects and Community Care Projects.

Renovation Projects

We are considering embarking on the following renovation project depending on sponsorship:

Ongoing projects requiring funding:

  • Medical supplies for leprosarium amounting to AZN 1000/quarter.

  • Funding and materials for pre-school and sports activities at a refugee centre.

Community Care Projects

We are also looking for volunteers to help with our Community Care programs:

  • Pre-school and sports activities at a refugee centre.

  • Creating and marketing handicraft products for the invalid home to generate an income.

  • Teaching English or computing at Gizildash orphanage.

  • Organising cookery, arts, sports, gardening or other activities at Gizildash orphanage.

Please see our projects and donate pages for full details.
