Mrs. Ashraf Ghandehari Bahadorzadeh

The Hamid and Christina Moghadam Program in Iranian Studies is delighted to announce that this coming Tuesday, December 2, 2008, Mrs. Ashraf Ghandehari Bahadorzadeh, an icon of philanthropy in Iran, will speak at Stanford University. The event is at Cubberley Auditorium and will begin promptly at 7:00 pm and continue to 9:00 pm. Guests are welcome to arrive beginning at 6:30 pm.

Mrs. Ghandehari Bahadorzadeh has dedicated 35 years to Kahrizak Charitable Foundation and through the tireless efforts of herself and thousands of volunteers, she has transformed the lives of thousands of people with disabilities and elderly Iranians. She uses social entrepreneurship, which combines philanthropy and business acumen, to not only lift the social stigma of disability, but to make each individual a proud, self-assured, and productive member of the community.
Mrs. Ghandehari Bahadorzadeh is this year's recipient of PARSA Community Foundation's Volunteerism and Action Award. While she was unable to attend PARSA CF's Persian Garden Gala, she has just arrived in California to receive the award in person. This event at Stanford University promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear this woman of singular accomplishment and learn about her life dedicated to public service and volunteerism.
The event is open to the public and is free of charge. For more information please contact or
