Our mission is to improve the lives of vulnerable and underprivileged children in Iran and enable them with the opportunity to become young leaders who can bring long-lasting change in their communities.

We apply a holistic approach to evaluating and promoting the well-being of a child within his or her own environment by contributing to projects in Education, Health and Social Services.

Children of Persia is managed by a dedicated Board of Directors and Officers, who volunteer their time, effort, and knowledge toward the fulfillment of the organization’s mission. Our members come from diverse backgrounds and have years of expertise and experience in legal, financial, medical, and technical professions, as well as academic and social services fields.

We help disadvantaged Iranian children and their families in Iran, and around the world, regardless of their religious, political or ethnic background. We believe every child has a right to smile!
