"My name is Fatemeh Parvani and I will be graduating from the OMID program right after Norouz.
My family moved to Iran from Afghanistan when I was 3. If OMID can raise the funds for a university scholarship for me, I will be enrolling next Autumn at the Tehran Medical Branch of Azad University to study Pharmacology.
I grew up in a very troubled family. My father would periodically physically abuse my mother, my sisters and myself. I know that there are many Afghan women who have to endure the same abuses that we had to endure. My plan is to continue my studies and then train further to become a doctor and return to Afghanistan to make difference to the lives of such women. No one in my family has ever gone to university. I hope to be the first to do so and go on to help others from there."
Please support this Nowruz 1397 appeal so that Fatemeh can go to Azad University to study Pharmacology on a four year degree course. The cost of this course is CAD$4,800.
Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
