The Omid Foundations consist of three registered charities, which were established by Marjaneh Halati, a London-based social psychologist and psychotherapist. It is her unique vision and passion that is the driving force behind their growth.

The Omid-e-Mehr Foundation (established in 2004 in Iran) is the main operating entity in Tehran. Omid Foundation USA (established in 2008 in the US) is responsible for awareness and fundraising in North America. Omid Foundation (established in 2006 in the UK) is responsible for awareness and fundraising in the rest of the world.

The operational center in Tehran has grown from taking 15 girls at the beginning to the 150 we have now and we are looking forward to opening our second center in Tehran soon.

Problems of abuse, disadvantage and poverty exist all over the world, but the Omid Foundations focuses on helping girls who are suffering in Iran. Our Mission is to strengthen the social, emotional, and economic competencies of disadvantaged Iranian young women (aged from 15 to 25), providing them with a sense of self-worth and with the opportunities to experience a full range of life options through self-empowerment, education and training.
