Our Pillars

Pillars

Projects and services at Hariri Foundation are founded on four pillars which reflect its vision, mission and objectives. Those pillars are inspired from the legacy of its founders, H.E. Rafic Hariri and H.E. Bahia Hariri, in state-building and sustainable human development.

Fostering a culture of innovation and creativity in education, empowering teachers and students, and improving the quality and relevance of education to meet the needs of the 21st century, providing equal opportunities for all, with a special emphasis on technical and vocational training.

Empowering citizens to be active participants in the decision-making process in their communities, fostering a culture of volunteerism and promoting democratic values, and enhancing civic engagement to build strong and inclusive communities.

Facilitating constructive dialogue and collaboration among different stakeholders to identify and address the most pressing challenges facing Lebanese society, and promoting evidence-based policymaking that supports sustainable human development.

Strengthening the capacity of urban communities to cope with shocks and stresses, promoting sustainable urban development, and enhancing the resilience of cities and towns to challenges of urbanization and conflict, including environmental degradation, social exclusion, and inadequate infrastructure, through innovative solutions and community engagement.
