Cendrine Marrouat: As the creator and CEO of two NGOs, what are the main challenges that you encounter?
Nejeed Kassam: This question could take hours and hours to answer. I would say there are three main challenges: It’s too big, am I legitimate? And money.
One major challenge that I have encountered has been the feeling that the world is so big, there are so many problems, and I am just one person. Where do I start? The answer, I have found, to this question, is right here. And when? Right now. Often the most difficult step to take is the first one. There are so many amazing people out there, so many incredible resources (Conversations for Change being just one). I believe that you can make a difference. You just need to start.
