A World Where All the Gazi's Go to School
Apr 19, 2018-- Gazi Jalaluddin has a clear vision: a world where no "Gazi" has to stop going to school. Poverty forced him to quit school as a child. He ultimately became a taxi driver in Kolcalata. By asking passengers to donate books, old clothes or medicine, he has helped many children return to their studies. By 2012, Gazi had also created two schools for 425 students and built an orphanage. Gazi's belief in the dignity of work pushed him to teach the young men of his village to drive taxis under the condition they donate a fraction of their earnings and teach two more needy boys.
