Project Description

1997

Zahra Karmali came face to face with the reality of child poverty in the developing world during a visit to Tanzania in 2004 when a homeless child asked her for five cents.
Zahra took him for lunch, and over time she would meet hundreds of street kids and be inspired to help raise funds for them.
In the years since, she has worked with community groups in Tanzania and Uganda to help street children, selling the crafts and jewelry they create and sending the proceeds back to them.
