The Behnoode Foundation was established in 2016 by its founder Behnood Javaherpour. . Philanthropy is one of the core values of the brand Behnoode, which actively supports charities in Nepal and Kashan, Iran.
Behnoode Art Foundation will provide free art classes to under privileged children to pursue and develop their creative and artistic skills. It will provide an opportunity to develop talent, educate and spotlight future artists on a global platform.Inspired by an expedition trip trekking to Mount Everest base camp in Nepal, Javaherpour was deeply touched witnessing the poverty and malnutrition in the country . He discovered that these children were walking 4 hours a day enduring extreme weather conditions just to get some form of education for 6 months of the year. He immediately began supporting the NYF, Nepal Youth Foundation and the Namche Bazaar Child Welfare School with basic essentials like money, food and medicine. After, his expedition Behnood returned regularly to Nepal providing education to the orphanage, now also teaching the children how to sketch and develop their artistic abilities. On average Behnood visits Nepal 4 times a year providing the organisations with basic essentials for each quarter.
Last December, Behnoode distributed over 150 back packs and future trips will provide jackets to keep the children warm from the harsh weather conditions. Future projects include opening a school in Nepal by raising awareness and funding to provide a secure future for those in need. This charity project has been further extended to build an art school in Kashan Iran. Free education and courses will be given to those who need a creative platform.
Behnoode Charity Foundation is committed to making a change in the world. Giving is not just about making a donation. It’s about making a difference.
