With the victory of the Islamic Revolution, supporting the poor was at the forefront of the plans of the newly established Islamic Republic of Iran. In this regard, various government institutions and charities were formed to achieve this goal.
One of the most important strategies of government charities has been to help create sustainable employment and eliminate their need for direct financial assistance. However, a significant number of clients are unable to work and engage in economic activities. For example, half of the 4 million people covered by one of these institutions are unable to engage in economic activity for physical or social reasons. This has led to a lot of spending from the public budget and attracting public donations in various ways to support these groups in the form of stipends. However, the government support for these people is so small that it is not enough to provide a minimal livelihood.
