About

Return to Roots is a youth-initiated program designed to strengthen community identity amongst Zoroastrian youth the world over.

The idea of a Zoroastrian Return to Roots Program was born out of the increasing disconnect between those Zoroastrians in the diaspora with their ancestral communities in Iran and India. It is a unique means of fostering community links and identity by taking small groups of youth on trips to explore their religious, social and cultural heritage.

Vision

  • Reconnect Zoroastrians in the diaspora with their origins in India and Iran
  • Foster a sense of community and identity
  • Focus on youth and the future generation
  • Create a network of RTR global alumni
  • Build a Return to Roots foundation & corpus of funding for future generations of Zoroastrians

We are working under the auspices of the UNESCO PARZOR Foundation. Please visit the supporters page to learn more.
