Whether due to family circumstances or lack of role models, many young people do not have the opportunity and incentive to pursue an education or develop a skill set that enables them to become self reliant.

The Amir and Yasmin Virani Family Foundation is a private charitable family foundation. The Foundation was developed to support community based organizations that target disadvantaged or marginalized children and youth in British Columbia who do not have the same opportunities as their peers to develop to their fullest potential.

It is hoped that with early intervention, various forms of assistance and positive role models, these young people will complete their education and/or develop positive life skills that enable them to become contributing members of the community in which they live and work.
