Let us break the cycle of poverty through education!
Keep Children In School (KCIS) is a nonprofit organization with one purpose: To provide financial support for educational needs of underprivileged children.
At the same time as KCIS was conceived, an organization called Anjoman e Yaran e Danesh va Mehr (AYDM) was founded in Iran by the same founder to act as the operational arm of KCIS in Iran. KCIS and AYDM are the two arms of the same entity, with the former focusing on fundraising and the latter on distribution.
KCIS, which began in 2000 as a small project supported by family and friends to “give back,” evolved into a recognized charity in 2010 in the state of California with tax ID# 27-4287052 and received its OFAC license# IA-16947 from the department of treasury in 2012.
