International Dinner

On Friday, October 22nd, 2010, Doostane Farsi Zabane Man, along with Hampshire College’s chapter of Project Nur (www.projectnur.org), is hosting an international dinner from 5:30 to 8:30 PM at the Red Barn at Hampshire College, which is at 893 West Street in Amherst, Massachusetts. There is a suggested donation $10 for adults and $5 for seniors, children, and students. We will have both restaurant and homemade food, so feel free to bring a foreign dish!

Bring as many friends as you want! An RSVP sent to doostane_farsi_zabane_man@yahoo.com would be appreciated, but is not necessary to attend the event.

  1. I just stumbled across your blog tonight and curious as to what this “Doostane farsi Zabane Man” program is. Fill me in when you get a chance!!

    • Hi Jasmine,
      Doostane Farsi Zabane Man is an Iranian-American pen pal program. We are aiming to decrease tension between the United States and Iran by increasing understanding between their citizens. I’m not sure if this is how you found us, but we’re actually based out of Amherst/Uxbridge, MA. We have more information on our “About” page (https://farsizaban.wordpress.com/about/) and the program is explained a much more comprehensive and thorough way than I just explained it. If you’d like to see some documents, such as our business plan, that better explain our thinking, feel free to ask. We’re always looking for volunteers, so if you’re interested, let us know!

      • Sounds like a great program, I would be honored to volunteer! My father is actually Persian and I had the opportunity to spend two months in Iran this summer to take Farsi class at Tehran U. Please email me at jasmine.setayesh@gmail.com if you guys need any help, I would really love to get involved, seems like you guys are putting a lot of great work into this 🙂

        Best,
        Jas
