Djaffar Shalchi

Founder and Chair of Board

Djaffar is an engineer, a real estate entrepreneur, but more importantly, he is the founder of Human Act and Millionaires for Humanity. At the age of nine, Djaffar moved from Tehran to Denmark, experiencing the danish welfare system at its best and counting himself fortunate to receive free education, free healthcare, and everything else the welfare system has to offer. The void between his native country and Denmark shaped Djaffar’s belief in the importance of the Nordic social model. He established the Human Act foundation in 2016. From Human Act came Millionaires for Humanity in 2019, in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, which highlighted the global issues of wealth inequality. Djaffar’s primary passion is implementing a 1% wealth tax globally.
