In 2015, Aisha Ali Mohamood had no idea how she, alone, could translate her love for children and refugees into actual help. She had no clear strategy to give back. But when she called her friends and asked them to volunteer their time, everything started unfolding. With strong faith coupled with a deep belief that she could make a difference, she dug into her little savings and decided to just get started. That is how I Profile Foundation began.
I Profile Foundation is an organization that seeks to run long-term annual projects with primary schools and refugee youth as well as children to promote integration and conflict skills with an emphasis on leadership and financial literacy.

Their programs focus on school children aged between 5-14 years and their training focuses on three areas which include legacy, leadership, and etiquette. In 2017, Aisha and her team began working on the Koin Dream Challenge. It is an initiative that enables students to be a part of the savings program organized by I Profile Foundation. These students are drawn from the schools they have developed a close relationship with.
For this very challenge, they have been able to get partnerships with some of the local banks like Bank of Africa. These are aimed at helping them achieve their goal of reaching out to many more schools.
