About Children Education Foundation

Founded in 2011, Children Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization for orphan children and underprivileged youth. We are located in Los Altos, CA, providing financial support to schools and orphanages in Nepal, Africa, and Brazil. Our initiative aims to meet children’s basic needs, including food, clothing, medical care, and educational requirements.

In addition, we support and promote The Virtues Education for all schools and orphanages across the world. It is a global grassroots initiative to inspire the practice of virtues in all aspects of life. That said, we aim to encourage volunteers to visit these schools and orphanages and provide holistic care to young people in need.

The Virtues Project

Our Mission Statement

Children Education Foundation has been established to improve the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of orphans and disadvantaged children in Nepal, Africa, and Brazil.

We believe every child deserves a chance to succeed in life, no matter their circumstances. By providing financial resources and loving support to less fortunate children and orphans, we hope to transform their lives and empower them to succeed in the future.

Our fervent hope and desire that as these children grow older, they will share these values and, in turn, transform the lives of others in their communities, cities, countries, and eventually the world.

Our President's Message

Cyrus Parvini

Do you know that over 5,000 children in the world become orphaned each day? Today, there are more than 150 million orphaned children worldwide. Is there anything that we can do to save the lives of at least a few of these children? Is there anything our children can do to help other children in need?

A UNICEF study* covering 29 countries found that an average of 86% of the children in those countries has experienced physical punishment in their parent’s home. Millions of these orphans are refugees, stateless and internally displaced by conflict, or victims of human rights violations and natural disasters. In Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia, a total of 1.3 million children live in institutional care. Most of these children had to cope with domestic violence, neglect, physical or mental punishment, and emotional or sexual abuse.

It has always been my passion and desire to contribute to society and make a difference in the lives of less fortunate people around the world, particularly children and orphans. My resources alone are limited and cannot reach far and wide enough to have an impact. So, I humbly extend my hands and invite you to join me in this worthy cause. Collectively, we can make a difference and improve the lives of those who desperately need our support. We all have to rise to this challenge, educate our children to reverse this trend, and work together to make a difference in the lives of these neglected orphans.

Would you like to be an example to your children and those around you? Would you like to change the lives of your children and family, as well as the lives of a few orphans halfway around the world for the better? Then please help us make this dream come true.

Thank you.
