The Omid Foundations (with registered charities in Iran, the US and the UK) were established in 2004 to strengthen the social, emotional, and economic competencies of disadvantaged young women in Iran (aged from 15 to 25), and provide 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. Omid’s clients have typically either been put into care from an early age, or run away from abusive homes, or live in extreme poverty. They often suffer from severe mental health and emotional difficulties, mostly stemming from their experiences of neglect, physical and sexual abuse, and exposure to drugs and violence. Despite their past difficulties, and the obstacles still facing them, Omid’s young clients have dreams. They yearn to participate in life, and to make meaningful contributions to the world around them. Omid’s holistic approach provides these young clients with the opportunities to realize such dreams. They are offered the tools, structure and support to help them succeed. And, above all, they are offered the chance to be heard. The cornerstones of this approach are self-empowerment, education and training, supplemented by effective work placement and counselling. Omid now caters to the need of over 100 young women. Donations in the US and the UK are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. The Foundation is also allowed to remit donations by US persons to Iran per the terms of its OFAC license issued by the US Department of the Treasury.
