On Wednesday 24th April, Yari’s sponsor and Ambassador Sorosh Tavakoli hosted a dinner that some of Yari’s ambassadors (Ardalan Shekarabi, Minister of Public Administration; Yasmine Satei-Berns, host at Resan-Hit podcast & entrepreneur; Bahar Pars, Actress) and a few entrepreneurs and business owners attended. The main purpose of the dinner was to present Yari organization and the way it works. Accordingly, Gabriella Overödder, from Effektiv Altruism held a very interesting and insightful discussion around effective giving which shed light on the effectiveness of the ways Yari works.

Another highlight of the night was that Sweden’s famous vegan blogger, Gustav Johansson, from Javligtgott provided and presented some of his best dishes to the guest and shared about his inspiring journey towards veganism. We are thankful for his time and effort. Follow his Instagram for some inspiration.
By the end of the evening, the guests collectively donated 542,000 SEK for organization development to fulfill Yari’s vision of sending 5000 children to school by 2023. We are very thankful that the donors have invested in the next generation of charities.
