TEAS supports Mosaic Charity

Press Release: In recognition of its support for the International Leadership Programme, organised by the Mosaic Charity, The European Azerbaijan Society (TEAS) was invited to a dinner hosted by HRH Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales, at St James’ Palace in London on 13 March.

TEAS is partnering with Mosaic, a charity established by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2007. Mosaic’s mentoring programmes create opportunities for young people growing up in deprived communities. Mosaic’s vision is for all young people to be supported so they may realise their potential, and it is anticipated that the programme will be especially useful for Azerbaijan, with its rapidly-developing economy and well-educated and aspirational youth. TEAS’ support of Mosaic forms part of its philanthropic role, which assists the underprivileged in Azerbaijan and across the world.

Describing the rationale for the programme, HRH the Prince of Wales said: “Positive aspirations are crucial for young people’s future success – what people aspire to do as a child is linked to what they do later in life, and low aspirations lead to poor academic attainment and professional achievement. For many young people, an ‘aspirations–attainment gap’ is caused by a lack of information about how they can realise their ambitions, by too few role models, and a lack of contact with adults in professional roles.”
