Azim N. Khamisa

He has committed his life to defeating the continuing cycle of violence amongst the youth.
AMV celebrates resilience and believes in non-violent solutions to achieve global peace. AMV strives to create a culture of peace, acceptance, mutual respect and harmony. It is in this spirit that we are delighted to introduce three people who turned their pain into something that heals and creates peace, rather than continuing the pointless cycle of violence. They are ordinary people whose choices make them extraordinary heroes.
