With ten years’ worth of experience, particularly in the NGO sector, Latifah Noor Khamis has dedicated her life to the plight of marginalised and disenfranchised communities such as women and children with refugee status. Latifah was born in Kenya and moved to South Africa in 2009. She holds a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree in Humanities from the University of Johannesburg. Amongst the various organisations in which she has served is the Children Legal Action Network, where she was a community paralegal officer; the Islamic Relief as a field officer; the Crescent Haven as a child worker, the Funj Youth Development Network as a field coordinator; and the Norwegian Peoples Aid as a field monitor. Latifah is a recipient of the International Christian Organisation Media Award for her positive involvement in assisting with the refugee crisis in South Sudan. In addition to that, she has gained recognition from various stakeholders for her volunteer work with Burundi Muslim refugees in Johannesburg. Currently, Latifah is pursuing a Post-Graduate Diploma in Advanced Social Research with the Sociology department at her alma mater. In the course of her work, she has garnered exposure to various African country policies relating to international relations which have further piqued her interests in social justice. At the ASRI Future Leaders Program, Latifah will contribute her hard working, team- player self, in order to make the most out of an opportunity that she believes is a golden one in the journey towards social justice within Africa.
