Towards the end of 2012, I went to a prison with my close friend in order to visit his sister. That occasion gave me opportunity to observe different women and children in that prison. The women, youth and children were seemed to be in a real challenging situation. Because of that the idea with different questions came to my mind. My close friend and I were constantly giving our sister various clothes, hygiene items and other materials she needed. Whenever we visited that prison, I observed a lot of similar women who needed help, and immediately I came up with an idea of reaching more women and children who needed some help not just in prison but in their daily lives .

For this reason, I kept asking myself, “Are there many sisters who are troubled, anxious, and unable to keep themselves clean? who else is visiting pregnant women and breast-feeding mothers? There were some other pregnant women; Some of the women were even breast feeding, and there were also young children who were under 18. Beyond all, I also questioned myself about youth and children whose parents are incarcerated. Likewise, our country’s economic situation was evidently an addition. “


The Objectives of this Organization are

To keep all prisoners who have physical or mental disabilities in a healthy physical and mental state.
To provide basic educational trainings and prevention materials relating to disease prevention, good health, hygiene, and proper usage of medication.

To assist in affording every prisoner an opportunity to obtain a foundation in basic literacy, numeracy, and vocational skills and offering necessary resources & counsels.
