Nabila Khashoggi, the founder of Nabila K, a company of lifestyle and beauty products, is also the author of the Spartan and the Green Egg a children’s graphic novel series. A portion of all the proceeds from Nabila Khashoggi’s beauty products and children’s books go toward The Children for Peace ONLUS, an Italian NGO that supports and educates children in developing countries all over the world.
One of the organization’s current projects is funding education for the children of the Waunana tribe, a group in Colombia actively pushed out of their ancestral homes. Their current population worldwide numbers only about 17,700, with most members living in Colombia and Panama.
In Colombia, the Waunana tribe is located mostly in Choco, which is in the San Juan River basin, and are being displaced increasingly to the Bogota slums due to economic changes and war. Being featured in Roland Joffe’s 1986, film The Mission, helped increase awareness of the plight of the endangered people.
