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
Zaman is such an amazing organization that does so much for the community. I enjoy volunteering with them because I feel like I'm actually making a difference in people's lives. I was able to sort and deliver food and clothing to women and children who needed a helping hand. Volunteering with Zaman is so rewarding, I am very grateful to have been able to do my part.
