How Mehrafarin shaped
After two years of non-official activities, Mehrafarin charity was officially launched by Mrs. Fatemeh Daneshvar on 1384 and started its benevolent activities.
Form then till now, Fatemeh Daneshvar and her husband, Mr. Mehrdad Akbarian, dedicated a part of their income from Sepahan Seir Asia Company and continued the activities of Mehrafarin for three years without asking help from any other organizations.
She then dedicated her inherited house from her father to charity and the central office of Mehrafarin in Shohada square of Tehran is the mentioned house we explained earlier.
She then turned other buildings and houses in other cities to other branches of Mehrafarin, as well.
In her trip to Mecca, Fatemeh Daneshvar promised God that in case of overcoming her problems and difficulties she is dealing with in her career; she will dedicate a part of it for charity affairs.
Back from Mecca, she had new hopes, worked hard and improved her career in export of minerals that led to foundation of Sepahan Seir Asia Company.
She is now CEO of mentioned company and she has shares in it.
After solving her financial problems, she remembered what she has promised God, so she started some activities to launch a charity in which she will be able to help needy people in an organized way.
Considering her academic education, from the very beginning she started to conduct researches about deprived and needy people, about damaged and socially-hurt people and wanted to support them with new attitudes.
After her researches were over, she decided she is going to help families with bad guardians (especially mothers and children) and also kids that are working and living in streets and students missing school indeed.
Mehrafarin aimed to change the path of “street to jail” to “street to university” and reform the culture of deprived families, thus she chose this community as its main target.
Mehrafarin visions and missions are to revive the lost self esteem of deprived families and replace self esteem with compassionate helps, and that is why Mehrafarin today has educational and consultation departments that are present for this purpose.
Let’s mention Hamraaz magazine that has been published to emphasize on this goal and wants to teach and educate families thus it is distributed among Mehrafarin members.
