    Guest: Mrs. Bahadorzadeh

    Mrs. Ashraf Ghandehari Bahadorzadeh has founded the Kahrizak Foundation and through the tireless efforts of herself and thousands of volunteers, she has transformed the lives of thousands of physically handicapped Iranians. She used the modern concept of social entrepreneurship, that combines philanthropy and business acumen, to not only lift the social stigma of physical handicap, but made each individual a proud, self-assured, and productive member of the community. She is visiting California to also receive the annual Volunteerism and Action Award from PARSA Community Foundation. The Hamid and Christina Moghadam Program in Iranian Studies at Stanford University is grateful to PARSA CF for facilitating Mrs. Bahadorzadeh's journey to California. Here is our chance to show our community's appreciation to a woman of singular accomplishment and learn about her life.
