What Tavaana Students Have to Say
How good that a free space for challenging and critical discussion, where questions and answers can be exchanged with the guidance of our esteemed professors, has been created to counter the current political and social situation in Iran. I thank all of those involved with Tavaana from the bottom of my heart. I know how important you are, and I hope you will be steadfast in your future steps. Do not hesitate because giving even one bit of knowledge to one person is an effective and lasting service to the nation.
