Based in New York, entrepreneur, actress, author, Nabila Khashoggi heads a skin care products company, Nabila K, that develops products made from the finest naturally derived ingredients. Her current philanthropic efforts are focused on The Children For Peace.




Co-founded by Nabila Khashoggi’s step-mother, Lamia Khashoggi, The Children For Peace addresses the situations of children around the world for whom survival itself is a pressing issue. The nonprofit’s leadership has expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that much time and money is spent to research the plight of various populations of children while nothing is done to change the circumstances that threaten their lives.

The Children For Peace pays no salaries or directors’ fees, and, except for the cost of filing the necessary documents annually with the Italian government, all monies donated go directly to the programs the organization sponsors. These programs are in Ethiopia, Mali, and the Palestinian Territories, and primarily provide food, medical attention, and education.
