In 2016, Lola Karimova-Tillyaeva founded the charity Foundation in memory of her father, the first president of the Republic of Uzbekistan, Islam Karimov. This organization has an important humanitarian mission and is active in all cultural and social spheres of the republic.
The activities and successes of the Islam Karimov Foundation
The mission of this organization is to develop the culture and education of the country, as well as its promotion abroad. Therefore, under the auspices of this fund, various actions and events are held:
- grants for research
- a popularization of Uzbek literature
- art exhibitions
- provision of grants for the creation of films and television programs
- implementation of programs for the comprehensive development of traditional crafts
- support for the charitable association “You are not alone”, which aims to help orphans
The work of this organization brings good results. For example, in January 2019, the foundation sponsored a translation of the novel by the Uzbek writer Abdullah Kadiri, called Days Gone By. This organization aims to help young people and children to get new opportunities for a better life. Therefore, the foundation often holds competitions for grants to study in Europe. Also, Lola Karimova-Tillyaeva deals with the support of orphans, along with her husband Timur Tillyaev. Spouses often repair and build new Mercy Houses to create decent living conditions for children.
