Association pour l'Avenir

Welcome to the Web Site of our association. Here you can find out about all our current activities, news, causes and fundraising campaigns, as well as read background information on our commitment to promoting human rights in Iran.

The Iran of today faces immense challenges, from severe water shortages to massive human rights abuses and increasing unemployment and poverty. But Iranians have proven capable of overcoming these challenges in the past and thriving despite setbacks.

After the 1979 revolution and the foundation of the Islamic Republic, Iran has profoundly changed. Fundamental human rights are siystematically violated. Today, Iran has one of the worst human rights violations records worldwide and so far it has claimed more than a million lives.

“Pour l'Avenir”, is an association promoting human rights and freedom in Iran. It was created in 2008 to help the victims of the Mullah's regime in Iran. The association’s founders are themselves exiles from this religious dictatorship, escaping a country where crimes against humanity are committed on a daily basis.

Our mission is to examine and explain the Iran of today while advocating for and shaping a new and better Iran of the future. Our chief goal is to educate European policymakers, the media, and the general public about the historic changes underway in Iran and help formulate policies that will create everlasting peace between Iranians and the global community.

With your help, volunteering work, and donations, we organise and coordinate relief efforts out of Switzerland to help the countless people who have been persecuted and fallen victim to the religious fanatic regime in Iran.

Thanks to your DONATIONS their VOICES are heard

Through our campaigns and international pressure on the Iranian regime, we have been able to release and resettle Iranian political prisoners in Iraq to a new life in Albania.

We are conducting various campaigns and actions to raise public awareness in order to stop the death penalty in Iran. Faced with a vicious dictatorship in Iran, Iranian women and children pay all possible prices. 

Help us to make their voices heard and to support them in the search for freedom.
