Khris Nedam was nominated for the Energizer Hall of Fame
Khris Nedam Platinum │Michigan
In 1998, with the help of her sixth-grade students in Northville, Michigan, Khris Nedam founded Kids 4 Afghan Kids – a non-profit organization aimed at using education to make a difference for boys and girls in Afghanistan.
It took three years to raise enough funds to build the first six-room school in rural Afghanistan. Many of the children that attend will walk more than four hours to attend school. Khris started as an IBO to earn additional money to use for the project.
After the first school was complete, Kids 4 Afghan Kids continued contributing to the community by building two more schools, a medical clinic, orphanage, bakery, and guesthouse for residents of the valley.
The project has not been without obstacles, but Khris refuses to give up on the kids in this community.
One of her former students nominated Khris for the Energizer Keep Going® Hall of Fame, saying that through Khris Nedam’s “unwavering determination” countless lives have been changed forever.
