Pilot School Construction Project for Refugee Children

The USACC believes that providing refugee children with educational opportunities will prevent them from becoming a lost generation and allow for their active participation in Azerbaijan's quickly developing society. This will be a long-term investment in a nation, which once had a literacy rate of 98 percent.

The USACC Pilot School Construction Project for Refugee Children reconstructs more than a lost school; it promotes self-sufficiency in a dependent population and rebuilds a lost identity by fostering enlightenment and a sense of belonging.

We have successfully campaigned to focus the attention of the donor community on the importance of education among refugee children. Many of the USACC members have followed our footsteps and constructed additional schools in refugee camps.

This year, we plan to adopt these schools by providing them with textbooks and other school supplies.

Bertling Logistics, a USACC member, has provided us with a warehouse in Houston, TX. Throughout the year, donors like you send textbooks, notebooks, pens, pencils and any other school supplies to the warehouse. Bertling Logistics ships these supplies to Azerbaijan for free where IRC distributes them among refugee children.

Please join us in this important effort. Your donation of school supplies can help ensure a child in Azerbaijan learns how to read and write. Give young Azerbaijanis a chance to become proud, productive and successful citizens of their country.

It's easy to participate in this worthy program! Just pack up a bundle of school supplies and mail them directly to:

USACC/Bertling Warehouse
15500 Vickery Drive, Houston, TX 77032

Note "USACC Humanitarian Mission" on the package.

Also, if you would like to make a donation to the Refugee Children in Azerbaijan, you can make your tax-deductible checks payable to "USACC".

Book Drive

The USACC also manages a book drive programs for schools and higher educational institutions in Azerbaijan. During 2003, USACC arranged a shipment of 20,000 books to Khazar University and the US Embassy in Baku for its public library. Through Relief International in Baku, another 20 containers of textbooks were distributed among universities in Baku and outlying regions. The USACC is committed to continuing these project and invites you to join this initiative. Please contact the USACC if you have books you would like to donate.
