Yousaf Masih - Pakistan

Prior to his present position in administration and finance at the Dar-Ul-Mussarat Centre for Special Children, Yousaf Masih taught Mathematics to high school students. The Dar-Ul-Mussarat Centre for Special Children is the oldest and largest center for children with special needs in Karachi. The center provides academic, social, and vocational education, community-based rehabilitation, physical and other therapies, and other supports to the children, youth, and young adults with physical and intellectual disabilities in its care.


In Mr. Masih's words, he is "working to create an environment where persons with disabilities (PWDs) have a role in both participating in and making decisions for their betterment, to expand opportunities for the shelter and employment of PWDs, and to provide an umbrella for capacity building for trainers, volunteers and social workers.  I hope to build a platform in Pakistan where all centres and institutes working for the rehabilitation of special people are connected to share their experiences and learn from each other."
