Kristen served as a pro-bono Communications Advisor to Thaki in 2017.
Thaki (pronounced “the-key” and translating to “smart” in Arabic) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to empower refugee and vulnerable children to learn and thrive through self-paced, motivational electronic tools. We distribute donated computers to educational centers that work with refugee and vulnerable children, in addition to giving computers to older students who need a computer to support their advanced learning.
We believe in collaboration and, as such, our model is to partner with those who are experts in fields that include education, technology and logistics. We are lean, efficient and leverage Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) goodwill to serve our targeted beneficiaries.
Thaki is currently focused on helping Syrian refugees in Lebanon and Jordan but the model is fully transferable to other situations of similar need.
