Doostane Farsi Zabane Man, which translates from Persian (Farsi) to "My Persian-Speaking Friends," aims to increase friendship and cultural understanding between Iranians and Americans through a pen pal program between young citizens of Iran and the United States.
"It was one of my wishes to have an American friend and now my first wish was granted."
-Niloofar, age 12, Iran
"To create a condition where exchange of values are communicated among Iranian children and those in the United States or Britain is of immense sociological, cultural and thus historical significance that will set a milestone in modern human relationship. The gravity of its subsequent influences will be attracted by much wider proponents. This project is the epitome of universal beauty; it is incredible."
