Schools in Iran

Subsequent Projects – Phase One

As Iran began to re-establish itself, it became apparent the current structure could not accommodate the growing number of schoolchildren. Djavad decided to fund the building of new schools at all levels of the education system.

A Dream Comes True

Vahid Eshghi, who had strong connections with the Iranian Ministry of Education, became a partner. He initially proposed two separate projects; Djavad agreed and their dream of making education available and accessible for the children in the slums of Iran began.

Equal Opportunities

In building these schools, we saw a real opportunity to help advance equity to those in the slums of Iran and to help make sure that no matter where a person is born, he or she has the chance to live a healthy, productive life.

No Barriers

My Uncle, Djavad, believed that gender should never be a factor in education.
