Outskirts of Tehran
There are many areas of extreme poverty in the outskirts of Tehran, where people live abhorrent conditions and lack the most basic necessities. Many children in these areas have unfortunately turned to dump dwelling.
A trusted non-profit organization, established by Sharif University students, called Jamiyat Amam Ali identifies these children and puts them back in school. KCIS via AYDM started its collaboration with Jamiyat in 2017, covering the three areas of Fashafooye, Robat Karim and Shahryar. Through this collaboration, AYDM provides children of these areas with education grants, workshops, and any other necessary means so that they stay in school and do not return to waste picking.
