About Us

Our Vision

Omid for Iran is an initiative committed to improving the life of ordinary Iranians by serving as a collaborative platform for promoting individual freedom, empowering civil society and advancing good governance.
As set forth in The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, to which Iran is a signatory, we reaffirm our faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person and in the equal rights of men and women regardless of their ethnic, religious, economic or political background and beliefs. We are committed to defending Iran’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, to restoring Iran’s standing and prestige in the international community, and to promoting friendly relations between Iran and all nations.

Our Mission

Omid for Iran’s mission is to protect and promote the interests of the people of Iran by striving to create the conditions for a better future — a future fueled with hope, opportunity and possibility.

Global Approach

For Iran to move forward, the Iranian people must have the opportunity to flourish as global citizens who can contribute to and benefit from an emerging and interdependent global community.
To realize this vision, Omid for Iran will focus on action and collaboration: proposing solutions, securing resources, creating partnerships, building capacity, funding projects and facilitating actions that make a tangible, practical and positive difference in the life of the Iranian people.
We welcome all friends of Iran, be they individuals or organizations, to secure a better and brighter future for Iran and the world community.

Identity & Philosophy

Iranians derive their strength and standing from the bonds that unite them, not the breaches that divide them, wherever they are in the world. Their values and vision are a reflection of their enduring power and boundless potential of all the world great civilizations and peoples. Their lives should not be defined by a clash of cultures but by the recognition and celebration of their shared humanity.
