Helping Iranian Students Achieve their Academic DreamsThe primary goal of Neekoo is to provide educational grants to students who are struggling financially to afford an education. The secondary goal is to provide an opportunity for Iranian-Canadian professionals to collaborate, provide mentorship and offer support to the younger generation.
“As the recipient of a grant, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the tremendous support that Neekoo has provided me … Through this grant, I have been able to continue supporting Iranian Canadians in this community, take courses to enhance my education and become one step closer to pursuing my dream of becoming a surgeon.
“Currently, I volunteer at two hospitals Vancouver General Hospital and St. Paul’s working with patients and getting a better understanding of the healthcare environment and setting. This experience is crucial because as a future physician it is important to be comfortable, and without this grant, I would not have been able to get this valuable experience.” ~ Sepeher
