Morvarid Karimi, MD (September 1971- May 2016) was an assistant professor of Neurology in the Movement Disorders Section at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. Her birthday month of September has been selected to celebrate her life, honor her memory, and legacy by holding an annual walk. The walk is called “Karimi Power” since her colleagues and residents recognized her work, willingness, and “Power” to do whatever it took to make sure her patients received the best care possible.
Keep Children In School foundation has been designated to be the beneficiaries of this year’s walk which reflects the charitable ideals held dear by Morvarid.
Your donation will Keep Children in School and spread legacy of “Karimi Power”. Thank You.

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.
