On 10 May 2018, another renovated yard was handed over to citizens within "Bizim həyət" (Our Yard) project, which was launched by IDEA Public Union with the help of local District Executive Powers.
Located at the crossing of Mammad Khalil Sharifli and Shirin Mirzayev streets in Nizami district, the improved yard will benefit 10 thousand dwellers of a 7-floor residential building.
Opening ceremony of the yard took place with the participation of IDEA founder Leyla Aliyeva, who also took part in the tree-planting together with the volunteers during the event.
The aim of the project is to upgrade yards that need renovation, increase areas of greeneries in the city and create more comfortable living environments for residents.
Remodeled with the support of Nizami District Executive Power, the 6 thousand sq meter yard features a new landscape design, public workout area, children's playground and a football field, providing comfort to everyone, including people with disabilities. The outdoor sports equipment has been placed specifically to create social fitness experience for people of all ages enabling them to lead active lives.
At the request of residents, façades and entrance areas of buildings have also been renovated. Additionally, 150 trees and shrubs, as well 1500 decorative flowers were planted in the yard.
"Bizim həyət" project was launched at the initiative of Vice-President of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation and founder and head of IDEA, Leyla Aliyeva. The yard in Nizami has become the fourth yard improved within the project.
The project is planned to cover all districts of Baku. Suggestions and requests on the yards that need a renovation like this can be sent to IDEA Public Union.
