In 1984, she started a successful commercial interior art design firm, as well as an adult community art school in San Francisco, California. After a visit to India in 1995 she was so moved by the children in the slums of Rishikesh who were living in such poverty that she vowed to come back permanently to help these kids. In 2002, Shahla closed her business, sold her house and belongings to fund Mother Miracle projects and moved permanently to Rishikesh India.What started as a program with 9 children in a rented apartment has flourished into a full-blown free educational institute. Today 580 underprivileged gifted children and adults are educated in a large compound where beside primary school, children learn music, art, karate and yoga. As well as free computer center and vocational training for women. As Ms. Ettefagh says, �Mother Miracle is not only an educational institute but a big loving and nurturing family.� The project is funded mostly by her, child sponsorship programs and general donors. www.mothermiracle.org
