Khloe is a 15-year-old international philanthropist. She recognized a common
challenge faced by youth was connecting their passion with a sustainable purpose. At
the age of 8 she started her own global non-profit organization called Khloe Kares,
which helps young people discover and realize their passions, she supports women
experiencing homelessness and installs water pumps and bathroom facilities in Ghana
in schools that don’t have access to clean water. The Khloe Kares Leadership
Workshop trains youth in leadership, business planning, and public speaking
skills. Khloe’s mission is to show students how to both set goals and achieve them.
She’s traveled all over the country telling her story of how philanthropy has changed her

Khloe Kares also partners with companies, churches and other organizations
throughout Southern California and the United States to co-host “Kare Bag Day”, and
other philanthropic activities. From distributing supplies to homeless communities to
engaging youth in service, Khloe makes it all happen along side amazing collaborators.
Khloe is started the youth chapter for the global organization Giving Tuesday “Giving
Tuesday Spark”, giving a global and international platform to amplify community
activism. She was the first youth to obtain the Points of Light George H Bush Award for
her humanitarian work in the community. She is also a youth leader in the Points of
Light Student Council where she leads with other youth around the world.
On a global scale, Khloe collaborates with well-known advocate Dawn Sutherland
to host a weeklong seminar in Ghana to empower and encourage young women to be
leaders in business. Now, she returns every year to install water pumps and bathroom
facilities and host leadership workshops with thousands of kids, encouraging them and
celebrating them. Khloe has also installed multiple water pumps and bathroom facilities
in schools there that lack access to clean water.

Currently, Khloe continues to impact the world by developing life changing content
that she plans to distribute to the world. Khloe has a desire to impact and create in all
areas of life. She designed her first line of clothing inspired by Ghanian art and textiles
