FULFILLMENT OF A PROMISING HOPE AND A PROSPEROUS FUTURE

          "My incentive for setting up the Hariri Foundation was grounded in the belief that the universities and institutions of higher learning in Lebanon admit students with hidden talents and skills. And since man is the wealth of the country, I feel that the best way to build Lebanon is through man's educational and cultural development and the realization of his hidden talents."

          With these words, the former prime minister set out his main objective in establishing the Hariri Foundation and specified the parameters and the scope of its activities. His supreme goal is the development of man's potentialities, and the place where this can be accomplished is the field of education in its different branches.

          The inability of thousands of Lebanese families to meet the cost of their children's university education no longer stood in the way of their development because the Hariri Foundation covered those expenses, thus making their dreams become reality.
