A Message From

Our Founder Fereshteh

Sometimes you don’t have the available resources to succeed but because I was born as a refugee, I learned to be scrappy and resourceful. I learned to make the best out of everything and it has gotten me to where I am today. I believe great things can start with empty hands. Knowledge is power and technology is the tool for this empowerment. That’s why I chose become a citizen of the world without considering geographical boundaries.

As Rumi said: “Where there is ruin, there is hope for great treasure.”

From the ruins of a shattered nation and the shattered lives of refugees can come treasure, if we know where to find it.
