Muhammad Zafrullah – Connecting the Disconnected

From the age of 17, Muhammad Zafrullah from Pakistan has been actively involved in impacting his community; from youth parliament to working with the UNDP, he has recently started an initiative that makes the internet accessible to rural youth. Zafrullah and team first started this initiative with the goal of exposing more rural youth to quality job opportunities; after many discussions, it was also decided that they would ensure that local farmers are kept up to date on the latest agricultural advances.

With the computer center set-up, Zafrullah trains rural youths on the uses of computers and the internet. With this initiative impacting approximately 200 youth, Zafrullah, in the future, sees three more centres being opened to further raise awareness about the benefits of the internet.
