Yarra Foundation

Pir Sohrab School is a rural girls high school with 135 students located in the Dashtyari region of Sistan Baluchestan province, southeastern Iran . Pir Sohrab is a vast plain with many small villages with the closest city being Chabahar which is 180km away.

The school was established by Hami Society in 2005. It has five classrooms, workshop, library, principle and teachers’ office, and other services. Two years ago there was a flood and earthquake and the school became inundated and was structurally damaged.  It is now under renovation to repair the damage. This is the only girl high school in the region; it is currently operated from two conexes (containers) classrooms while the permanent buildings are repaired.

Students come from different villages to this school and the cost of transportation services is a significant hardship for most of them. They desperately require assistance to fund continued transport to the school and so they may continue to receive a proper education and future opportunities.  In 2014, the Yarra Foundation was able to provide a one-off funding for stationery for 120 students. The foundation would like to continue this funding on a regular basis in the future as well as expanding to cover it for more students.

  • Long with other identified student opportunities.

  • In 2014, the Yarra Foundation provided required funding for the transportation of 60 students per month. Continuation of this activity as well as opportunities to provide it for additional students is a goal of the foundation.
