About Azim:

Azim Khamisa is an author, peace activist, and international inspirational speaker. He was born in Kenya, Africa and trained in mathematics, economics, and international finance in the UK.

Azim is a man that’s always on the go, taking action for societal transformation. He is the Founder and Chairperson of the Tariq Khamisa Foundation.

Azim became a social activist after his 20-year-old son, Tariq, was murdered by Tony Hicks, a 14-year-old gang member. He was inspired to transform his loss through the miraculous power of forgiveness. Azim believed there were “victims at both ends of the gun,” and forgave Tony. He then founded the Tariq Khamisa Foundation.

Azim created the foundation to break the cycle of youth violence by saving lives, empowering positive choices, and teaching the principles of non-violence and peacemaking.

After establishing the foundation, Azim invited Tony’s grandfather to join him. Together, since November 1995, the two have brought their story and message through TKF’s Peacemaker Assemblies. The duo has reached over a million elementary and middle school children live. They have also reached several million via video programs, guiding the youth to choose a peacemaker’s life of non-violence, and forgiveness.


“If you’re living in resentment or guilt, these are highly debilitating emotions that preclude you from performing at 100% of your potential.”  –  Azim Khamisa
