The Emerging Leaders of Pakistan would like to congratulate 2012 ELP Fellow Muhammad Sabir on his selection for Asia Society’s Asia 21 Young Leaders Class of 2015. Sabir is one of just two Pakistanis selected among the 32 young leaders.
Sabir’s Class of Young Leaders represents twenty-two countries. About fifty percent work in the private sector, 44 percent in the nonprofit sector, and 6 percent in the public sector. They are selected through a highly competitive process based on outstanding achievement, commitment to public service, and a proven ability to make the world a better place.
Now in its 10th year, the Asia 21 Young Leaders Initiative has become a robust network of more than 800 young leaders from 30 nations. They are all in their own ways focused on shaping a brighter future for the Asia-Pacific region, and confronting the most vexing challenges facing the region today.
Earlier this year, Sabir joined the Acumen Fund as a 2015 Pakistan Fellow. His life story was featured in DAWN News. The Emerging Leaders of Pakistan is thrilled for Sabir’s latest accomplishment and hope this experience will continue to pave Sabir’s path of growth and giving back to his community.
