The “Marianna V. Vardinoyannis Foundation” considering that education of children is the most important condition, after health, for the creation of a better society, has developed the “Support Schools Project” sending books and equipment to schools in many parts of Greece.

“Support Schools Project” is implemented every year by the Foundation responding to the appeals of schools all over Greece. In 2014, the project was supported by the Heydar Aliyev Foundation through the proceeds of the performance of Azerbaijani Culture given at the Herodion Theatre in September 2014, under the initiative to the Embassy of Azerbaijan in Greece. Several schools in various parts of Greece received books and equipment that made the lessons more interactive and pleasant for the students.


The Presidents of the two foundations who are both Goodwill Ambassadors of UNESCO, the First Lady of Azerbaijan Mrs. Mehriban Aliyeva and Mrs Marianna V. Vardinoyannis co-operate in various activities and this kind gesture of the “Heydar Aliyev Foundation” was appreciated very much!


First school recipient of assistance this year was the 9th Primary School of Piraeus in Keratsini. The Director of the School, Mr. George Lahanas, met with Mrs Marianna V. Vardinoyannis and HE the Ambassador of Azerbaijan, Mr Rahman Mustafayev, and thanked them on behalf of the students and their parents for this valuable help.
