WHO WE ARE?
GIIKA as a registered foundation/charity (900/92/99137) and a nongovernmental organization founded by Mr. Hamid Rezazade in 2004 and has been at the forefront of the development of the children protection system and the improvement of the quality of life of impoverished, orphan, disadvantaged, deprived and vulnerable children in Mashhad/Iran. In the center of all our activities is the quality of childhood so we promote peace, prosperity and support of children and young people. We are aiming to better impact our work for the benefit of all children in Iran.
Our vision is to extend programs for children to facilitate training and education, good nutrition, counseling, healthcare, income generating activities, and also to transform the lives of disadvantaged children and their families where each individual can live up to their full potential.
To bring that vision into reality we provide vital support, education, love and personal monitoring. Teenagers, during their precarious transition into adulthood, receive life skills coaching and assistance. We provide a full array of community-based protective and supportive services and work in partnership with the State Welfare Organization of Iran and other philanthropic organizations nationwide.
GIIKA provides and builds support for vulnerable, disadvantaged and at-risk children to become positive and contributing members of society and to regain control over their lives.
