Originating from humble beginnings in East Africa. the Sumar-Lakhani family knew that some day, they would return to support the impoverished, unwaged, and underprivileged. The family foundation aims to bring forth the best from non-profits and driven individuals, worldwide. Working now for ten years, SLF is involved in several projects worldwide, and we’re just getting started.
