About Huda Ahmed

Born and raised in Karachi, Huda studied dentistry at one of the best institutes of dental medicine in Pakistan. A few months before her graduation, Pakistan witnessed the devastating floods of 2010. Determined to help the victims, Huda initiated a flood relief drive that ultimately changed the trajectory of her own life. Realizing that education is the key to empowering individuals, she decided to work towards eradicating educational inequity. She was selected as a part of the inaugural cohort of Fellows at Teach For Pakistan, and taught for two years in an under-resourced girls’ school in Sultanabad, a volatile area of Karachi. During the two years, she worked on multiple school and community development initiatives aimed to create awareness about various socio-economic problems and change community mindsets. Watching her students evolve into confident, self-motivated, and responsible individuals reinforced Huda’s belief that quality education is the key to solving many of the country’s problems. After her fellowship ended in June 2013, she joined Alif Ailaan, an alliance for education reform led by a communications campaign, and advocates for the right to education for every child in Pakistan. She is also working on the pilot phase of the Reading Room Project, an educational technology venture that aims to give low-income Pakistani students access to excellent online learning resources in a supportive environment.
