Below are some independent endorsements of the Return to Roots Program from individuals within the diasporic community.

“The Return to Roots program is a fantastic opportunity for young adult Zoroastrians living in the wider diaspora to connect with their heritage. The nature of the experiential learning provided cannot be duplicated through other formats, and the leadership and community building skills acquired would be a great asset in the development of the next generation of Zoroastrian leaders.”

Daraius M. Bharucha, President, Zoroastrian Society of Ontario

“Here’s an outstanding way to immerse oneself in the culture of the Parsis and of Zoroastrianism while experiencing the wonders of India. Go have fun, learn, and connect.”

Jamsheed K. Choksy, Professor of Iranian, Indian, and Zoroastrian Studies, Indiana University

“The Return to Roots Program is a unique opportunity for young Zarathushtis residing in North America to discover and experience their religious, cultural and social heritage in India.  This Program aims to create a lasting life-long impression on the young adult participants as they are exposed to learning, understanding and connecting with Zoroastrianism and its rituals (food, art, music) in Indian/Parsi culture.  I urge young adult Zarathushtis world-wide to avail this opportunity and utilize their skills and experiences to strengthen community identity among Zarathushti Youth globally and promote the development of future generation of Zarathushti Leaders.”

Katayun Kapadia, FEZANA – President
