With decades of wide-ranging experience now in social service programs – I have given support, encouraged and empowered others working extensively with different organizations in a volunteer capacity.
In my home town of Arima, local organizations included St. Vincent de Paul Society and Lions International. Projects included seeng after the elderly with home repairs, researching and finding jobs for the displaced, organizing small businesses, meals-on-meals, food bank operations, and provided job training and support services to empower those in need.
From 1995 to 2000, I served the community of Phoenix, Arizona through my church affiliation with Unity of Phoenix.
In 2002, with my friend George Roundy, to address the issue of world hunger together with a core team of ten individuals, we helped raise close to $100,000 US for The Hunger Project – an organization that empowers inhabitants in different countries of the world to be self-reliant.
“Empower with Art” continues to serve other communities, empowering others to be self-sufficient, supporting social entrepreneurship and sustainable happiness.
As we renew our commitment to our environment by the use of alternative energies and environmentally friendly living, we ensure a safe heritage for our coming generation.
We continue to make a difference in the lives of fellow humans in our community, and improve our capacity to serve additional communities, as we move forward together as a society.
This “Empower with Art” work – gratitude to my dear family, friends, well-wishers, and patrons for the encouragement and support. It is dedicated to you ….Kazim
For despite experiencing a stroke on 10th June, 2012, I have managed (with the Grace of God, prayers, diet and exercise regimen, medication, and therapy) somehow remaining active, continuing with our social initiatives and producing art, books, documentary photograph & videos, music, websites, blogs, Facebook Groups, doing freelance community journalism. “And Sharing Awareness of our Universal Eco-Civilization Consciousness, for We are United Together by the Life Force of Our Earth Home We All Depend On for Sustainability”.
