Poverty to Prosperity | The Zarathushtis Of Zavda | WZO Trust Funds
The World Zoroastrian Organization Trust & WZO Trust Funds is proud to share with you the video unveiled at the World Zoroastrian Congress 2018 held in Perth, Australia this past weekend.
In 2006 when WZOTF began its work in Zavda 14 Zarathushti families lived below the globally defined poverty line of USD 1.90 per day. Some were even living on less than USD 0.95 per day.
Today all 14 families have been rehabilitated and in one way or another benefit from the a combination of programs that WZOTF runs such as poverty relief, food grain distribution, education and self employment. WZOTF has also installed solar panels which provide water and electricity to 11 of the Zarathushti homes in Zavda.
We ask you to please share the message of the good work being done by the WZO Trusts.

The World Zoroastrian Organization Trust & WZO Trust Funds have been working in the village of Zavda since 2006 to rehabilitate 14 poor Zarathushti families. Families were living below the poverty line of USD 1.90 per day. In many cases families were living on USD 0.95 per day. It is a heartening story of a village resurrected and now standing relatively on its own.
