Education Fund 

It did not take long for the English teaching volunteers to see that Alex and Elvin, two orphaned teenagers at Gizildash orphanage were very eager to learn. It came therefore as no surprise that the boys expressed an interest in trying to get into higher education. Unfortunately, considering their circumstances, this would not be possible.

To give these boys the chance of a lifetime, and in co-operation with Azeta, CSA launched an appeal to raise funds so Alex and Elvin could go to Baku to receive extra tuition to prepare them for the entrance exams. Many teachers give their time for free, or only charge a nominal fee, as everyone is keen to help them. Nevertheless transport, tuition and books amount to AZN 250 per month. Alex successfully passed his exams in the summer of 2008 and gained a place at a Baku college. At his military medical it transpired Alex had pre-TB and he spent several months in hospital. Elvin passed his exams in 2009 and became a long distance student in Lenkoran University. To our great delight, Alex received a scholarship to study in Russia in 2010. Both students received a laptop from Bertling to help with their studies and CSA continue to support both students in numerous ways to obtain their college degrees.

If you can help these boys to fulfil their dreams, please get in touch with us via info@csabaku.org. Any amount of money, small or large, will contribute to their goal of creating a better life for themselves.
