You Are Not Alone Foundation

The You Are Not Alone Foundation, founded by Lola Tillyaeva and Timur Tillyaev, supports vulnerable children in Uzbekistan. We are striving to unlock children’s full potential by providing them with a caring and loving environment in which they grow up with an all-around education, quality medical care and psychological support. By doing that, we support children so that they can thrive and become confident and independent adults living a fulfilling life and contributing to our society.
