Jaz O'Hara
Founder at The Worldwide Tribe

Profile

Jaz O'Hara is the founder of The Worldwide Tribe, an organisation and online community raising awareness about the refugee crisis, as well as supporting those caught up in it.

The Worldwide Tribe began after a Facebook post Jaz wrote about her first trip to the Calais Jungle (in July 2015) went viral. Since then, Jaz has worked tirelessly in camps across Europe and the Middle East to tell the stories that otherwise go unheard.

The Worldwide Tribe has run many projects on the ground, from installing wifi in camps in France and Greece, to organising a football tournament in Dunkirk, funding a fire truck in Calais, running art projects in Za'atari camp in Jordan, supporting a Search and rescue in the Med, coordinating food, clothing, shelter and much much more. Jaz and her team are dedicated to challenging the fear-based narrative of much of today's media and society.
