Connecting, Supporting, and Empowering Northern California Migrant Communities

together we are changing lives

Our Mission

We empower Northern California's Farsi and Dari-speaking migrant communities through cultural celebration and education, nurturing inclusive environments where diversity not only exists but flourishes. With grassroots programs and strategic partnerships, we ensure equitable access to essential local and regional resources vital for unlocking the full potential of migrant communities.

Our Focus


Celebrating culture is more than just a mere observance; it's an immersive journey into the heart of humanity. It's about embracing the traditions, languages, arts, and values that define us as individuals and communities.

Whether through music, dance, cuisine, or art, celebrating culture ignites a sense of belonging, fostering empathy, understanding, and unity. It's a joyful affirmation of our shared humanity, reminding us that our differences are what make us beautifully diverse and undeniably connected.

Providing education is the cornerstone of empowerment and enlightenment. It's not just about imparting knowledge; it's about igniting curiosity, nurturing critical thinking, and unlocking the boundless potential within every learner. Education is a transformative journey that equips individuals with the skills, tools, and confidence to shape their own destinies and contribute meaningfully to society. It's the foundation upon which brighter futures are built, where dreams take flight, and where every voice has the power to be heard.


Fostering self-care is an act of profound compassion towards oneself. It's about recognizing the intrinsic value of our well-being and committing to nurturing it with kindness and intention. Through mindfulness practices, healthy boundaries, and acts of self-compassion, fostering self-care cultivates resilience and inner strength. It's a transformative practice that nourishes the body, mind, and spirit, empowering us to thrive and flourish in every aspect of our lives. By prioritizing self-care, we honor our inherent worth and embrace the journey towards wholeness and fulfillment.

Social Integration

Promoting social integration is the deliberate effort to weave the fabric of society tighter, ensuring that every individual, regardless of background, feels valued and included. It's about transcending differences and creating a tapestry of unity from diverse threads. Through dialogue, mutual respect, and empathy, promoting social integration builds bridges between communities, fostering understanding and cooperation. Promoting social integration creates spaces where everyone feels they belong, where solidarity replaces division, and where the shared values of compassion and justice guide our interactions.
