Changing the Face of the Future, One Child at a Time
March 3, 2017
Farhadi, Kiarostami & Child Foundation
As we prepare for Nowruz, we are also celebrating a second win at the Academy Awards for Mr. Asghar Farhadi.
Mr. Farhadi and his family have been long time supporters of Child Foundation and we cannot be happier for both him and Iranian Cinema for this major achievement.
It is ironic that we have been working on celebrating the life of another superior film director and a mentor to all filmmakers around the world, Abbas Kiarostami, by creating an educational scholarship in his name. Please see more info about this scholarship in this newsletter.
On the side of Council's meetings, Child Foundation has organized a very interesting panel discussion in Geneva at the UN headquarters on Friday, March 10 at 11 AM with speakers such as Lucio Melandri, UNICEF's Senior Emergency Manager Refugee & Migrant, and Ms. Sarah Crowe, UNICEF Spokesperson for Geneva Crisis Cell Leading communication on the Refugee and Migrant Crisis.
If you would like to attend this event in person, please let us know so we can send you an invitation.
These and many other activities that we do are to help the children in need. As they say "a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step," so changing thousands of children's lives starts with one. I hope you join us in changing the world, one child at a time.
