The World Zoroastrian Organisation is an international organization created to support Zoroastrians all over the world with aid, education, community, and advocacy. All Zoroastrians of any background are welcome to join and we also welcome membership from non-Zoroastrian supporters and friends. Here's what membership supports and provides:
*The WZO raises funds to support wherever and whenever financial aid is needed. As a registered charity and philanthropic organization in several countries, we have the infrastructure and resources to aid those in need when they come to us for help. We firmly believe in full solidarity with the global Zoroastrian community and are constantly working towards various methods to help Zoroastrians in need.
*The WZO also actively networks and connects Zoroastrians so that no matter where a Zoroastrian is they can connect with other co-religionists if possible. We also host inclusive social, educational, and cultural events and activities that help Zoroastrians connect to their faith and cultures and also help educate non-Zoroastrians about our faith.
*The WZO aims to be the main forward-facing Zoroastrian organization when it comes to educating the general public about Zoroastrianism. Through our connections in media, business, politics, education, diplomacy, interfaith and more, the WZO works towards making sure Zoroastrians are represented accurately and our voices become part of the conversation.
*The WZO operates the World Zoroastrian House located in Feltham, which is easily accessible by road and train from London and elsewhere. We can help to arrange a wide variety of Zoroastrian ceremonies, interfaith weddings, religious initiations (Sedreh Pooshi/Navjote), and more. The WZO House is also available to rent for private events, conferences, and celebrations and we also host rituals there done by our Resident Priest which can be both attended in person and seen online.
*The WZO produces Hamazor, our chief periodical that is released 3 times a year. With contributors from all over the Zoroastrian world in various fields of expertise, Hamazor is full of informative, witty, entertaining, and engaging content for all readers. We welcome contributions and our team works hard to produce the highest quality issues possible.
*Want to join the WZO but don't consider yourself a Zoroastrian? Apply to be a "Friend of WZO", either as a Life or Ordinary (renewable every year) member. You too can support our efforts and the global Zoroastrian community.
