You are the future of the world—and the future begins now. So act now. Not next week or next month; not tomorrow, but today. With children in Malawi. Enthusiasm is excitement with inspiration, motivation, and a pinch of creativity. You probably think you cannot build a home or a school from clementine oranges, but let me tell you how it can be done.
Near the end of January , there was a terrible earthquake in Gujarat, an Indian state. In that part of the world most people live in big towns and cities, which were shaken violently. Many thousands of people were killed as buildings collapsed on top of them. I was only four years old when this happened, but the news of the destruction had a big impact on me. My parents told me about the earthquake as they were reading the newspaper. A jamatkhana an Ismaili Muslim center of prayer or worship that is kept peaceful and holy had collapsed under the force of the earthquake and the mukhisaheb , or priest, had died.
He had young children of his own, who were just a little older than I was. My parents were leaders in our jamatkhana in Richmond Hill, Ontario, at the time.
A 12-year-old agent of change
I thought about what would become of me if a disaster like that happened here. I could be left without parents. When I thought about what had happened in Gujarat, I imagined the devastation. I was eating a clementine orange while I was thinking about the earthquake, and I was trying to think how I could help. Then, as I bit into the juicy fruit, it came to me. Sell clementines! Now all I had to do was get to work. I felt very confident when I first went out with my box of clementines. I was going to sell from door to door in a community not too far from of my house.
I always had an adult with me—one of my parents or a grandparent. Some people said no to me, but I did not stop. After all, many people said yes. My parents taught me that you should always keep trying. Giving up is never the solution.

Yes, I imagined what it would be like if this tragedy had happened to my family, but it was still very far removed from me. I was inspired by their suffering, and I sought a solution that I thought might help ease that suffering. What is the difference between motivation and inspiration?
Motivation is something that comes from inside you, and inspiration comes from the outside. Of course, there is nothing wrong with motivation. It drives us to accomplish great things. However, without inspiration our actions can often be empty. The person who has inspired me the most is our spiritual leader, His Highness the Aga Khan. He is a philanthropist who has devoted himself to bettering the lives of others around the world.
For more information about the Aga Khan, please visit www. During the years that followed, I did a lot more fundraising and public speaking, and I could see that there were many kids who cared and who wanted to fundraise with me and make a difference in the world.
Each and every one of them had the potential to do anything they chose to do. You all have this type of potential inside of you, just waiting to get out.

What you need are the tools to bring out that potential and make it shine. No matter whether you want to excel in school, fundraise, work to earn extra money or help your family through hard times, you can do it if you know how to tap into the potential that is inside you. So why did I write this book? I know that there are many kids who want to know how to raise funds.
I want kids to find their passion, take action and know that they can do amazing things and make a difference in the lives of others. If you believe in your cause, and you know that what you are doing is right, you will be able to raise funds, and you should do it.
