Meeting with Ban Ki-moon
Peyman%20and%20bank%20ki%20moon

Dear All,

During the last week of September, Child Foundation attended a few workshops and seminars in the United Nations and UNICEF. In a special meeting of UN Development Group, about "Delivering the Post-2015 Development Agenda", I met with Mr. Ban Ki-moon, United Nation Secretary General. In this meeting I raised the problem of sanctions in delivering collected donations to Iran which received positive attention by the participants. We also discussed strengthening capacities and building effective institutions, localizing agenda, participatory monitoring and accountabilities, partnerships with civil society, etc.

The mission of Child Foundation is to help children in need, who have been identified as high achievers to remain in school. We believe that education can move a child beyond the stigma of poverty and give that the child the tools to reach his or her true and full potential. Since our inception in 1994, Child Foundation has provided basic necessities to children living in poverty or hardship, enhancing the quality of life for these children as well as their respective families. By providing access to education, Child Foundation hopes to eliminate children prematurely leaving school, and in certain cases, avoid early matrimony.
