Omid-E-Mehr was created in 2004 by Marjaneh Halati, a London-based social psychologist and psychotherapist. The organization helps young women, between the ages of 15 to 25, who suffer from severe mental and emotional difficulties and provides them with resources to strengthen their social, emotional and economic competencies. Omid- E- Mehr does all of this without any funding or assistance from the Iranian government.
