In Memory of Fereshteh Saber

In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation in honor of Fereshteh Saber can be made to: Keep Children in School Foundation on behalf of Hoda’s House.

An angel lived among us,
A gift from the heaven’s above.
She showered us with kindness
And shared with us her love.
She cherished every moment,
And always had a bright smile.
She loved her son, family and friends dearly,
Nestled close within her heart.
Though, now, she’s far away.
She’s gone to live in each of our hearts.
She might not be here with us today,
But, she’s smiling down on every one of us,
And telling us she’s O.K.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to break the cycle of poverty by helping children stay in school.

Keep Children In School (KCIS) implements its mission by either matching sponsors directly to children whose families cannot afford to keep them in school or accept one time donations, thus enabling them to continue their education from elementary school through college.

What began in 2000 as a small project by family and friends to “give back,” KCIS evolved into a recognized charity in 2010 in the state of California and received its OFAC license (IA-16947) from the department of treasury in 2012.

Help a Child

You can help a child by making a general donation, becoming a sponsor, or contributing to their back to school or Nowruz shopping.

Dedicate an Event

Dedicate your special day and help change lives. It’s easy! Create an event on our website and ask your guests to donate to KCIS in lieu of gifts.
