The Kurdish Project was co-created by Farhad “Fred” Khosravi, a Kurdish-American entrepreneur, and Media Cause, a nonprofit digital agency, as a cultural-education initiative to raise awareness in Western culture of Kurdish people. The project flourishes through collaboration with the Kurdish-American community, Bay Area tech entrepreneurs, and other nonprofit organizations.
While the publicity around Kurdish people (commonly referred to as Kurds) has increased appreciably, most Americans’ knowledge of Kurdish people remains limited. The Kurdish Project aims to close this gap by serving as a gateway for Americans and other nationalities to discover, learn, and connect with Kurdish people. By sharing stories and insights from the region, The Kurdish Project cultivates a better understanding of the people of Kurdistan.
We hope that a deeper understanding of the Kurdish people translates into long-term engagement with the region. In turn, we can begin to see a world where the Middle East can find more stability and peace for its many inhabitants.
We welcome participation from anyone who would like to get involved. Please contact us directly if you’d like to collaborate.
