Sabeer Ahmed, a resident of Lyari, quit his eduation and decided to work in an auto workshop in his neighborhood of Lyari. One of the many other reasons to quit school and work in an auto workshop, was poor education system, which was unable to divulge his capabilities.
He says, “It’s not that I didn’t dream big to have a white-collar profession with a big and cozy house but it was the system that didn’t let my dreams to come true. Due to improper early education, I couldn’t go further with my education. Teachers and even parents started taking me as a dull student who won’t be able to do anything in his life.”
The significant turning point came in his life when he attended a program “Young Youth Club 2012/2013”. Later he attended a 5-day training conference “Lyari Young Leaders Conference” in September, 2013. These programs encouraged him and gave him a path to follow.
He started his education again and initiated his organization ‘Dreams of Youth’ where he strives to bring peace through theatre, workshops, training programs, seminars and many other events. He conquered his fear and started working as facilitator and trainer.
