Letter from the President
Child Progress Report

Dear friends & family of Child Foundation,

My colleagues in Iran and USA offices have been working hard to prepare the latest six month reports. All of our sponsors will receive their latest six month report about the child, or children, they support from our office within the next month. We are also preparing a wonderful program for our Universal Children's Day celebration. It will be held on November 23 in Roxbury Center in Beverly Hills in collaboration with United Nations Association, UN Women, and UNICEF. Please see event's flyer in this newsletter.

The holiday season is just around the corner, a time for sharing time with families and sharing food with those who are less fortunate. Please look for our flyer and emails in your mail and donate to our food package fund as generously as you can.

We are also planning for an Annual Toy Drive in the Los Angeles area in collaboration with Radio 670AM and ProFamily Group.

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.
