"Salif Keita was born with albinism. As a child he suffered greatly from social isolation, and was even kicked out of school because of his albinism. Today, he is known around the world as the Golden Voice of Africa and has been cited as "perhaps the greatest talent Africa has ever produced". With his multiple Grammy nominations, he is also considered one the world's most popular artist."
"The US-based non-profit tax-exempt 501(c) 3 organization brings media attention to the global plight of people with albinism, has advocacy for their rights and social integration, and raises funds to provide them with free healthcare and educational services in the US, Africa and around the world." 
"The Salif Keita Global Foundation develops media campaigns that positively portray those with albinism, creates programs to raise their self-esteem, provides information and support groups, connects them with organizations, provides job training, and legal assistance for those in danger of persecution and healthcare services. The organization is dedicated to ending the persecution and genocide against persons with albinism."
