Ziba Azizi is a responsible teacher and a philanthropist woman in a very hard-line and patriarchal situation in her area of residence. She was able to identify the people in need and attract the goodwill school builders in deprived areas by the charity community of “Imam Ali” (Society of Students Against Poverty).
