Mitra Forouzesh Behnam is a native of Iran, Tehran. She was born to a Kurdish family in Tehran, Iran. Mitra immigrant to the United State in November 1986 with her 2 children, ages 4 & 5 years old.
After my two children started their college, I have blessed again in 1998 giving birth to my third child. Same time I forced to move to a small town. I knew God has a purpose for everything! I knew it was a reason for me to move to Tracy, therefore I became active in the community. I knew there are tens of thousands of children who don’t have the luxury that our kids have, after my last child in my heart, I felt that I must go out and make a difference in the world by joining the charity to help needy children. Then I did joint “DAAYEH” to help underprivileged children in the disadvantaged area! I felt I can give to those in need the best way I know, but I didn’t get satisfaction in my life by just giving donation, or joining other non-profit organization; satisfaction comes from knowing personal vision comes within, and my personal vision was, how to lead an organization that to pursue my vision which it was to put a smile on other children’s faces that are in the dark area of poverty.
