Happy Holidays
letter from the president
Dear friends,

Now that the Holiday Season is in full-swing, it is a perfect time to say thank you.

We have accomplished a lot this year, such as being named a Top-Rated 2015 nonprofit by GreatNonprofits. With the help of our donors, we made a difference in the lives of thousands of children in need in Afghanistan, Iran, Indonesia, and Nepal, as well as many innocent children among Syrian refugees in Europe.

We are so grateful for your support, and for sharing our vision of a brighter future, but our work isn’t done. Through your generosity today, we can continue to build upon our success. Your financial contribution – of any amount – will help support our programs to make a positive difference. 

Join us in our work to better the lives of children in need around the world. Remember, the best gift that you can give a child in need is education. It lasts for a lifetime. Please donate generously here to ensure that Child Foundation delivers your gift.

Happy holidays and wishing you peace and joy,

Peyman Raoofi Psy.D.
President & CEO

Helping Refugees - Update
Remember the refugees we informed you about last week? Well, with the help of Mr. Nasirpour, who had originally found these refugees, we were able to provide them with additional blankets to make sure they keep a little warmer this winter. But they still need more, and you can help.

Please read their stories here, and give to our refugees fund here.
Hi, I'm Nimsang!
Nimsang is a young student from the city of Kathmandu, Nepal. She is a smart student who loves to study and dance. Sadly, four years ago her parents abandoned her, and no other family members are willing to help her. Nimsang is a bright student, and she needs your support to be able to receive the education that she deserves.

Please consider helping this young student so that she can continue to attend school.

With Love for Niloofar

When Hanieh found out about the needs of her sponsored child, Niloofar, she helped purchase a gas stove, refrigerator, and some clothes for her. Niloofar felt so happy for the wonderful gifts she received!

Email is one of our most powerful tools we have to spread our message and grow our base.
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 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.
