Welcome to Mehran School

For more than 5 decades, Mrs. Masoumeh Sohrab-Mafi and Mr. Yahya Mafi provided life-changing educational programs for thousands of children and youth who attended Mehran School in Tehran and developed programs for The Children’s Book Council in Iran. They promoted Iranian children’s literature in other countries and dedicated their time to children’s encyclopedia.

After passing away of Mr. Yahya Mafi in Jan 2014, Mehran School Alumni in United States decided to create an educational foundation in California to have the legacy of Mafis who change their life live on.

We operate as a nonprofit organization with a passionate staff of 100% volunteers, so your donations go directly to educating life lessons to children,building schools, building children’s libraries, providing children books, art & literacy programs and workshops to prepare high school children get ready for life.
