They are the future

The ex-Merrill man who is now committed to educating the most vulnerable in society – the world’s poverty-stricken children

On 23 March 1999 Mustafa Saeed Rahman was travelling to a friend’s house in Portland, Oregon. Out of the blue, a drunk driver skidded around a bend in front of the car in which Mustafa was travelling. He died in the collision – it was six days before his 12th birthday.

His father, Mohammad, created the One Ummah Foundation in memory of his son and what started as a small charity for friends and family, has now mushroomed into an organization that funds projects in Cambodia, Cameroon, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

Mohammad and his wife Tasneem hope that by the end of 2009 the foundation will reach out to even more of the world’s most disadvantaged children; children who are born into crushing poverty, and live a bleak existence, with even bleaker prospects. Rahman says, “I wanted to keep Mustafa’s memory alive as long as I possibly could, and the best way of doing this was creating a Foundation. Our key focus was to break the cycle of child labor.”

Rahman has over 25 years of financial services expertise under his belt. He was senior vice president and portfolio manager for Wachovia and vice president for private clients for Merrill Lynch. Today he runs Rubicon Global Asset Management, an investment banking firm from Portland, Oregon.
