When 3 year old Alan Kurdi’s lifeless body washed up on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, the world weeped oceans. Like the countless refugees whose last view in this world was the inside of their boats, his death took the wind out of our sails. This talk is for every child who has nowhere to call home. This talk is for Alan.

Taher Kathawala, a student from GEMS Wellington Academy DSO, loves telling stories and talking about himself, so any opportunity to do that on stage is more than welcome.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
