Testimonials

Being a teacher for the last thirty years, Zaman provides an opportunity to put in action what I have been teaching to my students.
Mina Kahn, B.O.O.S.T. Program Volunteer Teacher
I've delivered food to people with absolutely nothing - not even furniture. I got my kids involved because I realized I couldn't just tell them about it; they had to see it for themselves. And they have learned a lot. Their way of thinking is different now. They appreciate how much they have and they understand the value of giving back.
