Around 140 schools were inaugurated on Tuesday across the 31 provinces in the country by the Barekat Foundation.

The schools, a gift from Ayatollah Khamenei to the underprivileged regions on the eve of the new school year (begins September 23), were built in cooperation with the Organization for Renovating, Developing and Equipping Schools, and supervised by Barekat.

Barekat is dedicated to creating entrepreneurs, building schools and infrastructural facilities in remote and underdeveloped regions. It is affiliated to the Setad (a special office for executing the decrees of Imam Khomeini in helping the underprivileged).
