> Sanya's Hope for Children - Helping a child means transforming a community one life at a time

"SHFC (Sanya's Hope For Children) strongly believes every child deserves basic human rights like food, shelter, clothes, safety, health, and education."

Anyone can make a difference


Hello! My name is Sanya Pirani, I am a junior at Prior Lake High School, Minnesota; the CEO/Founder of Sanya’s Hope For Children (SHFC); and the Community Action Partnership Agency Youth Ambassador. I have been volunteering and fundraising since the age of seven. I am committed to helping children and transforming communities one life at a time. With half the world’s population under the ripe age of 25, SHFC’s mission is to help young people with basic necessities of life, fund educational endeavors, find their voice, take action, and make an impact on vital community issues.  For further details view our press kit: https://www.sanyashopeforchildren.org/about-sanya/press-kit/

I have been involved in various service projects with the CAP Agency, Feed My Starving Children, and the CROP Hunger Walk. My most recent project was “Food Drive” for local families we collected 1500 pounds of food and $1,500. In additional, our previous fundraiser was “Diaper Drive”  we manage to collect over 13,000 diapers! Thanks to our local partners like Lion clubs and Optimist Club.

My future hope is to raise enough money to go on a mission trip and build school for impoverished children. My dream is to open a local “Compassion media center for vulnerable teen”.
