Letter from the President

We had a great year in 2014, considering it was one of the most prosperous years in the history of Child Foundation. But, this is just the beginning.

We were able to increase the number of our donors to more than 3,700 and the number of children we support to more than seven thousand. With the new OFAC license we recieved, we were able to send over 1,800,000 dollars of your donations in the form of food items, and later, cash to our Iran and Afghanistan office to support children in need who are supported by Child Foundation. These are all record breaking numbers and we are all very proud of them.

With your help, we will increase both of these numbers in 2015. We are planning to increase the number of children we support to more than eight thousand by the end of this year, and with enough donors, we can reach even higher. Our internal Infrastructure is in place here in the US, as well as our offices in Afghanistan and Iran, so we are ready. We're counting on you to help us reach our goals.

Our Annual Report is printed and in the process of being mailed to all of our US based donors along with their end of the year tax statements. You can also read it on our website. If you need additional copies, or if you want us to send a few copies to a friend to familiarize them with Child Foundation, please send us their address and we will mail a copy on your behalf.

Remember, we are planning to increase the number of children we support by at least one thousand, and we need every bit of help that you can provide.

Full speed ahead!

A Run for Children
Rasul is running his first marathon to help children in need. He will join his friend, Morteza, who decided to run in honor of his father who went into a coma on September 1, 2014.

They will run in a Napa Valley Marathon on March 1st and raise money for those children whose basic needs in life are not met, to allow them to continue their education. Rasul is aiming to raise 3,500 dollars through the website GoFundMe. Please consider helping him to reach his goal.

Mohsen Yeganeh Concert

Child Foundation held an informational booth at Mohsen Yeganeh's successful concert on Friday, January 16, where hundreds of participants stopped by our table to inquire about our sponsorship program. Dr Raoofi, Child Foundation's President attended the concert, answering any questions about Child Foundation, and talked to many of our sponsors who were also attending this wonderful event.

We sincerely thank our volunteer, Fariba Bolorieh, our staff, Andisheh, and Mr. Sarooie, who provided us with this opportunity.

Hi, I'm Nazanin
Nazanin is a smart 9 year old girl living in the city of Mazar-e-Sharif, Afghanistan. Despite all of her mother's health issues, she tries very hard to provide for her three children. Unfortunately, they are struggling.

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

See more children waiting for sponsorship.

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.
