Yari foundation was born out of a burning desire to keep financially marginalized schoolchildren in school and provide them financial means to continue studying. 27th September 1999 is the day when the founders officially registered it as Yari foundation and since then it has been our mission to enable young kids making a brighter future for themselves through education.
In honor of the 20th anniversary, on Friday 27th September 2019, we held an event to celebrate this wonderful 20 years long journey together with our founders, members, ambassadors and dedicated supporters. During the event, globally recognized Iranian Balouchi composer and singer, Rostam Mirlashari, who is also our ambassador, performed a few pieces. His performance surely made our celebration more joyful. Besides, we managed to find sponsors to 11 students, as well as receiving 14,655kr in cash donation which is equal to one-year education for 5 students approximately.
We would like to take this opportunity to firmly appreciate the effort and dedication of each and every person who has crossed paths with Yari foundation one way or another throughout these years. Without your selfless contributions, whether small or big, we would have not made it this far.
We are humbled and privileged to make an impact in life of 1000 current students as well as a couple of thousands of alumni. We are eternally proud of every single current and alumni students who Yari has ever supported. Our hard work is well paid off hearing success stories of our students. It also becomes the fuel to our passion in reaching more financially marginalized students.
We dream of a world where every child has access to education. Therefore, we have set an ambitious goal to support 5000 students per year by the year 2023. We are greatly encouraged to wide open our wings and reach to more financially marginalized students. Join us in this amazing journey of changing lives and make your mark in this world.
