Idris Elba .. the smiling person with "good intentions" (profile)
Among the stars of his generation, he stands out for his famous smile, the power of his action flicks, and his courage and nobility on screen, as well as in real life.
Idris Elba, the famous English actor, who was born on September 6, 1972, graduated from the National Youth Theater in London, is considered one of the most interested artists in humanitarian work, and even became a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations.
Since May 2019, Elba Films, which participated, on Tuesday, in the session "Prosperity through Creativity... The Art of Shaping Content from Its Makers" at the World Government Summit in Dubai, has generated more than $9.8 billion at the global box office, including Over $3.6 billion in North America, where he is one of the top 20 highest-grossing actors.
In addition to his acting, production and music skills, in 2016 he was named to Time's list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
Before becoming a successful global actor, Idris Elba, in his youth, received a £1,500 grant from the Prince Fund, which funds various opportunities and programs for young people to improve their lives.
The scholarship allowed Idriss to train at the National Youth Musical Theater and increase his life experience.
Because it pushed him forward, Idris continued to align closely with the organization and gave his time to help promote awareness of the issues that disenfranchise young people.
Elba's marriage to Canadian model and actress Sabrina Dori Elba reinforced his commitment to social influence, not considering it a fashion for them like some celebrities, but turning it into a way of life.
Beyond the couple's ambitious relationship, they are both revered for their genuine interest in improving the lives of others around the world, and this shared dedication influences their daily work and the initiatives they dedicate their time to.
The Elba family understands how crises such as war, extreme climate change, and famine destabilize communities and severely affect the economic well-being of entire regions.
As ambassadors for the International Fund for Agricultural Development, the couple have called for billions of dollars to be invested in agricultural initiatives that benefit farmers across Africa.
Idris Elba and his wife are playing a role in building a sustainable food system that meets the needs of farmers and consumers, after the United Nations Goodwill Embassy allowed them to speak on behalf of rural African communities who needed support during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through the couple's joint lifestyle project S'Able Labs, multiple relationships are being built to activate systems with socially responsible practices.
Under this 'brand of luxury for all beings', the duo invests in initiatives centered around the well-being of the community through various mediums, such as their skincare line.
S'Able Labs also supports the conversation about healthy relationships through the duo's Coupledom podcast.
Each episode explores the importance of human connection and authentic experiences around learning how to build a partnership. In addition to these projects, the 2022 EBONY Beauty & Grooming Award Winner is a refreshing addition to the wellness industry rooted in its commitment to social good.

Not only do Idris and Sabrina promote the ideals of societal upliftment, but they also believe that fashion can be a platform to do so as well.
Partnering with luxury designer Christian Louboutin, the couple launched Walk a Mile in My Shoes, a collaborative group that promotes social equality through the sale of eco-friendly shoes.
In the first season alone, the group raised over €1 million which has been donated to various humanitarian aid groups including Gathering for Justice, BeRose, Purposeful, Immediate Theater and Somali Hope Foundation.
