WHO WE ARE
Born in Africa, we grew up acutely aware of poverty and helplessness. We have been blessed with successful careers in South Florida and as soon as we could, we started the Foundation in 2001 to start giving back to the unfortunate members of our society. Along the way, our efforts have extended globally. We have found that humanity is the common thread that binds us all. We look forward to continuing these efforts and after us, our three children Shalina, Ali & Mohamed will continue our legacy.
Shalina Jaffer grew up in tropical South Florida and attended the University of Miami School of Architecture, where she graduated with a Bachelors of Architecture in 2009. Since then, Jaffer has worked on a diverse range of design-build commercial and residential projects, developing her skills as a multidisciplinary architect by providing services such as; zoning code research, schematic design, feasibility studies, design development, interior design + finish selection, construction document preparation, landscape design, and permit expediting. In 2017, Shalina started Mihenna LLC, a company that focuses on cultural sharing and sells DIY Henna Tattoo Kits that make the application of henna fun and easy for all. Besides her work endeavors, Shalina is passionate about participating in a variety of charitable causes that benefit humanity and work towards a greater good; volunteerism is a trait that runs deep in the Jaffer family.
