Volunteer Needs <h5>Donate</h5> The Omid-e-Meh <h5>Donate</h5> The Omid-e-Mehr center is a safe haven where young women with troubled pasts can take refuge. Here we build self-esteem and develop vocational skills to ensure bright futures.However, we have to turn away hundreds of women every year, so we need your help to open a new center. With regular donations from around the world we hope to be able to help hundreds more women in a second Omid-e-Mehr center. <h5>Volunteer</h5> In order to keep their costs at a minimum, only two of the staff members outside Iran hold paid positions (one in the US and one in the UK), their main task being the coordination of our fundraising efforts outside Iran. So, the help of volunteers is crucial to the running of their organization and they use volunteers from across the world. It is great work experience for those people who are at university and college and we are willing to give references to future employees based on your work at the Omid Foundations. .
