Just over 20 years ago, when I first met Karim, we discussed the planning of his work to build global school communities.

Karim met with me and Nobel Peace Prize recipient Betty Williams as “elders in the global village” so that we might both advise him on building these school communities.

Karim’s work started by teaching at a girls’ school in Harare, Zimbabwe and by building a program to alleviate hunger in a Harare shanty town inhabited by disabled women.

As I observed Karim’s subsequent progress and dedication to children of the world he built communities in schools on four continents, and in sixteen countries, from India to Lithuania.

In recent years, it has been fulfilling for me to conceive, create, and co-found with Karim, the African Peace Journal.

Karim, as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal, has created a remarkably dedicated editorial board of social entrepreneurs and human rights lawyers working on the African continent.

Karim has worked diligently to build an alliance between his editorial team and United Nations International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Geneva, Switzerland; he collaborates with IOM’s global team of journalists to report on demanding issues related to Africa such as child trafficking, exploitation of African migrants, and harsh realities of African refugees.

For 20 years I’ve seen Karim make the world a better place.
