Having spent the last 28 years strategically and skillfully creating mass communications to address important and controversial issues most people are afraid to even acknowledge, it’s time to begin the next step in my journey: inspiring new generations to continue creating change in the world
Inspired by doing simple jobs at age 8 for Mother Teresa in his native Calcutta, Firdaus Kharas, MA, D.Hum (hc), LL.D. (hc) has desired to have a social impact throughout his life. His impact has culminated in articles that credit him with influencing or saving “millions of lives”.
Using mass communications as his tool through Chocolate Moose Media, he has been a pioneer in social entrepreneurship for the last 28 years. Working alone out of his home, he has created 4,000 animated shorts, versioned into 385 languages that have been used in 198 countries and seen by over a billion people. As well, he has produced numerous documentaries and TV series seen around the world.
Showered with 120 awards, he has received the prestigious Peabody Award and was named one of the world’s 50 Most Talented Social Innovators and the Best Global Informative Short Film Producer for his unique ability to cross the barriers to human communications like language, religion and culture.
