My mother and her 9 siblings started a non-profit primary school called FI Foundation School, in a small village in Sindh, Pakistan in 2002 in honor of their parents.

For the past 10 years, I have been visiting and actively volunteering at this school. I have witnessed first-hand the transformation of students from shy, timid kids to bold and self-confident individuals.

Every child in this school has more passion and thirst for knowledge than kids at top private schools in the US, where my own kids go.

Unfortunately, they are so far in remote areas of Pakistan that the world does not know about them. But this does not stop them from conquering the world.
