History

In south-central Iran, there is a city surrounded by the Saheb Al-Zaman mountains. It is the largest and most developed city in the Kerman Province. Our journey begins in Kerman, Iran.

Kerman is where we find the philanthropic efforts of David Khazai. David used his innovative talents to help the blind community in Kerman by providing them with skills and employment. His mission is to highlight that given the right tools, anyone can be successful. This led to the fruition of the Light & Wisdom foundation.

Philanthropy

Philanthropy

Philanthropy can be broadly defined as love for humankind and it is derived from the Greek words “Philos,” which means loving and “Anthropos,” which means humankind. The purpose of philanthropy is to improve the well being of humankind by preventing and solving social problems.

Light & Wisdom Foundation

Light and Wisdom, a foundation in Kerman, created and founded by David Khazai and Mr. Mansouri, has supported blind work since 2014. The foundation teaches blind men and women from 20 to 50 years old how to weave rugs on a loom using a custom-made coding system. The system enables blind people who cannot read braille by relating objects to weaving instructions or wool colors. This system proved highly successful, and the beneficiaries have created some masterpieces.

” Sight By Hand – Seeing is first in the mind. Our weaver never physically sees the patterns by using the coding system they can see it in their minds first. What your mind can conceive and believe, you can achieve. “

– David Khazai –

The principles of Light and Wisdom lie within Mr. Khazai’s own percipience. With a strong belief in the idea of “personality” further breaking down into the actual realization of “personal-ability” and David seeks to further the ability of the blind individuals so they can gain finical independence and much more. This experience can also serve as a model for other companies seeking to help blind individuals to find work.
