Youth Organization-Tariq Khamisa Foundation

Tasreen is the Executive Director for the Tariq Khamisa Foundation (TKF), a nonprofit with a mission to educate and inspire children in the restorative principles of compassion, forgiveness and peacemaking.

In 1995, Tasreen’s 20-year-old brother, Tariq, was murdered during a gang-involved robbery.  In an act of deep compassion, her family chose to forgive the 14-year-old assailant.  Her family recognized that there were victims on both ends of the gun and began the foundation in an effort to stop youth violence. Tasreen recently began playing a vital part in the release of the assailant from prison.

Tasreen is a proud and active mother, frequently volunteering at her children’s school, sports and community activities.

Jenni Prisk, Divya Kakaiya and Diana MarJip-Chuh were her sponsors.
