Economic Apartheid is Karim’s core concern as an economist.
It is Karim’s goal to design systemic economic policy models that address those marginalized children with whom we all share this planet, whose families live on less that $1 a day.
These children remain largely invisible to us all, and will continue to do so, until courageous men like Karim step up.
I am heartened to see how Karim has combined his skills in Education and Economics to create literacy programs for children in the slums of Africa. The work Karim is doing for the poorest of the poor on our planet, is not easy. It is hard.
