Elena's Light, United States


Fereshteh Ganjavi is the founder of Elena’s Light. Fereshteh came to New Haven, Connecticut as a refugee in 2011. Since she was young, she had a passion for education. Upon being resettled in the US, Fereshteh realized that refugee women often didn’t have access to practical education and faced cultural, familial, and logistical barriers to attend classes. With accessibility in mind, Fereshteh founded Elena’s Light and designed in-home classes for English language acquisition and maternal and pediatric health education. Today, she has expanded the organization to provide varied services that benefit the refugee population in the Greater New Haven Area.
