I want to extend my utmost gratitude for your continued support of TKF. Because of you, we were able to sustain the organization through some of the toughest years our country has seen. In addition, we have been able to strengthen, deepen, and expand our much-needed services, which, as you know, are rooted in advancing peace in our schools and communities. It is rewarding to continue our work alongside each one of you, with the ultimate goal of saving lives.
Over the past year, the TKF staff and board have continued to evolve the organization towards the objective of sustainability in succession. We had intentional conversations about how to maximize TKF programming to positively impact schools and communities.
We focused our lens by going deep with our partners in building their internal capacity to support their students and parents, with the goal of well-being and healing. TKF services and trainings continue to provide life skills and tools to shift communities away from harm toward harmony and peace, by fostering resilience and hope to RISE and THRIVE.
As an organization, we understand our work cannot happen with a silo mentality. For true change to happen, we must closely collaborate with TKF’s community and academic partners. We must commit to coming together in the spirit of community to lift each other up in order to meet the high demand of support needed for our struggling schools and families. Collaboration continues to be a priority of mine. I actively create space to sit in dialogue with community members, thought leaders, and decision-makers—always with the intent to listen, learn, serve, and grow in order to affect change.
We thank you again for continuing to champion TKF and helping us create a more peaceful and just world. Every day we step closer to that goal knowing you walk side-by-side with us.
In peace, and with gratitude,
Tasreen Khamisa, Executive Director
