Our local road safety partners
HAYAT International Humanitarian NGO was established in 1993 with an initial focus of responding to the influx of the thousands of refugees and IDPs resulting from the Nagorno Karabakh conflict. The NGO has accumulated vast experience in community development, mobilization and public awareness campaigns, leading large scale projects in cooperation with international organizations such as UNHCR, Save the Children, Mercy Corps International and others. As an EASST partner, HAYAT NGO works to reduce road fatalities and injuries in Azerbaijan.

They are supported in their work by Eurovision Song Contest winner and EASST Ambassador Nigar Jamal (Nikki) who is a strong advocate for road safety.
In addition, a member of Federation Internationale de L’Automobile (FIA), the National Automobile Club of Azerbaijan (AMAK) aims to promote a motor tourism and clubbing culture in Azerbaijan.
