Norouz ’97


P.E.F. is giving you the chance to participate in the annual fundraising campaign to help raise funds for education of children.

The Norouz ‘97 Kid 2 Kid Campaign is for children and youth who want to take charge of raising at least GBP 2000 and help advance education among your peers. The campaign will launch on Shab-e Yalda and will continue until we reach our goal in time for Norouz ’97.

The student and school that raise the highest amount of donation will be awarded the ‘P.E.F. Civic Award’. The Award is comprised of a gift certificate for the student as well as GBP 250 donation towards the school that help raise the highest amount of contribution to this year’s Kid 2 Kid campaign.
