OUR FOUNDING STORY

In 1999, Delfarib Fanaie and her husband, Farshid Samsami, traveled to their home country of Iran, with the intent of adopting a child. Their travels took them to various orphan care centers in Tehran,  where they witnessed first-hand the needs of many children.

In 2006, while adopting her oldest child, Delfarib Fanaie met a young girl by the name of Sepideh who asked her, “why can’t you take me with you?” Stirred by this experience, with no way to respond to this sweet girl, Delfarib knew her life would never be the same. She became determined to inspire friends, family, and co-workers to help impoverished children.

In 2008, Delfarib’s friends, touched and inspired by Sepideh’s story, answered Delfarib’s call to action, and together they founded a volunteer-based non-profit charitable organization. Subsequently, MAP launched its mission and programs with a holistic approach toward ending childhood poverty, guided by the principles and philosophy of Ladan Judge. Aligned with Delfarib’s vision, together they breathed life into this dream.  

Since then, thanks to the dedication and hard work of many individuals, MAP has become a community of like-minded individuals spanning the globe with the belief that every act of kindness, no matter how small, can radically change the life of a child and generations to come.
