Throughout Canada, the US and other countries outside of the State of Israel, Jewish students study in day schools in order to study Hebrew, Jewish history and learn about Jewish culture and Jewish heritage.   This model was so successful that it is now being adopted by Azerbaijan, who feels that Azerbaijani youth should also attend day schools to reinforce their Azerbaijani identity.

In 2018, at the first meeting of representatives of Azerbaijani diaspora organizations operating in Bern, Switzerland, opinions were exchanged about their activities, current issues, and upcoming tasks, and various proposals were voiced in order to make diaspora activities more efficient. At the end of the event, the official opening ceremony of the “Karabakh” Azerbaijan school was held.

This school, a joint project of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the State Committee for Work with Diaspora, was organized by the Embassy of Azerbaijan in Switzerland. Azerbaijani language, history, national dance, and piano lessons are taught by professional teachers at the school integrated into the Swiss state education system.

On April 20, 2019, an Azerbaijani school was opened in Nantes, France. The main goal of the “Karabakh” school is to ensure that children who are citizens of Azerbaijan living in France do not forget their native language and history.

More than 60 weekend schools operate in different countries in order to make the generation growing up abroad more connected to Azerbaijan. The purpose of Karabakh schools is to teach Azerbaijani children their mother tongue so that they can preserve their national identity in the future, promote it and defend their interests, as well as educating and enlightening young people and children in the spirit of patriotism.

The “Azerbaijani language” book, given to children in Karabakh schools in foreign countries was published with the support of the Diaspora Committee as a joint project of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation.

Intended for 6-10-year-old children living abroad, the age level, worldview, sphere of interest, and the necessary needs of minors to communicate in the Azerbaijani language were taken into account. Each section of the book, which consists of 37 sections, is composed of different types of tasks for both grammar and conversation.

Karabakh Schools also exist online. The British Azerbaijani Community (BAC) has launched the first live online Karabakh School in the UK. This co-operates with the Landau School in Baku, Azerbaijan, which is committed to providing it with experts in its field.

Karabakh School’s team of friendly professional staff aims to provide inclusive education, promote an excellent knowledge of the Azerbaijani language and teach and educate Azerbaijani children about Azerbaijani heritage, culture, music, and history.

The Fund for Support to the Azerbaijani Diaspora has launched a new project called “Karabakh Twin Schools.” Children from families of former IDPs and victims of the conflict with Armenia spent one week (18.07.2022-24.7.2022) at Jirtdan Republican Children’s Rest and Health Center in the township of Shuvalan, Khazar District of Baku, as part of the Karabakh Twin Schools project. The students took part in cultural-educational panels, trips to picturesque Azerbaijani locations, and museum tours, which all assisted in reinforcing their identity.
