Khadarlis is a non-profit working every day to fight poverty and social inequality in Rhode Island and Sierra Leone.
In 1991 the Revolutionary United Front (RUF), a guerrilla fighting force, sought to overthrow the government of Sierra Leone and take control of the country’s lucrative diamond mine industry. The war devastated the already struggling region by killing over 50,000 people, mostly women and children, and forcing over 2 million people to flee to neighboring countries in the hopes of escaping the violent onslaught. Upon returning to her country after the war and witnessing the devastation the war had caused, Khadar’s life was changed forever. She made a promise to do whatever she could to help those in need. And from this, the concept of Khadarlis Global was born.
