Let’s bring education to them so that they will return to school
YARRA Foundation through its Persian New Year Campaign has decided to raise funds for buying and equipping a van with a classroom in order to make free portable classes accessible to children who are victims of child labour.
This project will be handled with the support of a reputable charity in Iran for those children who are illegally exploited in the most remote and deprived areas.
The Education Van and its teachers will enable disadvantaged children to return to the classroom and learn.
