ExxonMobil Supports Education

Again, ExxonMobil is following through on their corporate strategy in Azerbaijan by placing strong emphasis on education, especially among those who need it the most. Nearly 1,400 first-year students from the Bilasuvar, Sabirabad and Saatli refugee camps participated in Knowledge Day celebrations, which were organized by the "SULH" humanitarian organization and paid for by a grant from Exxon Azerbaijan. Entertainment included a circus, clowns, magicians and a children's song competition, and each student received a school bag full of necessary school materials.

Exxon Azerbaijan has also supported the Red Crescent in two recent endeavors: first-aid training courses for refugees and a minivan used to distribute meals to elderly refugees. The van has also been used to transport refugee children to summer camps and to distribute seeds and clothing donated by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR).
