Hi I am Salam Hamzeh Ghaith the founder and president of SmallWorld international Foundation. SmallWorld was founded in 2011, with the aim of supporting children in need globally – all while bringing people from all walks of life together under the umbrella of philanthropy, peace and unity. Smallworld focuses primarily on education and training of these children because Salam believes that that’s the best way to give a child his/her long-term independence as an adult. It empowers them to make their own informed decisions and actions without reliance on others.
Since the launch of Smallworld more than 10,000 underprivileged children were able to receive educational/training support in 38 countries through 55 charities on the 5 different continents worldwide. She has learnt a lot and changed a lot during this journey, she states “it’s been an eye-opener on so many levels, it has made me more tolerant, more compassionate and most importantly it has given me the opportunity to meet some incredible individuals whom I now consider family”.
