We have a presence in all Iran. Our possibilities to have a local presence, economical situation in the area and the collaboration with local communities all play a part in where we chose to work. The map will show where we currently are active.
YARI uses several methods to identify which children to prioritize help to. Each child has a responsible field worker – these are essentially our “boots on the ground” and each field worker is responsible for several children, but all are coordinated by a central coordination group in Tehran and Stockholm.
The most common way a child is introduced to us is through our field workers, who moves around and explore in-field concentrating on areas where poverty is wide spread. He or She then pin points candidates whom are both at need and have families willing to let their children attend school.
