Abdul Sayyad

Programme Mentor

Abdul feels that it is not enough to work with girls alone to empower them and boys who largely play no part in the conversation on gender equality must take a stand. Drawing from his experience with Safe Kids Foundation where he worked with children on education, Abdul joined ECF in January, 2018 to assist in ECF’s work to raise Gender Equitable Boys. He feels proud of the boys graduating from the Action for Equality programme seeing them take on leadership roles to bring a change in the way women and girls are viewed and treated.

Abdul has the ability to bring multiple perspectives to the table on any given issue, he loves reading, listening to music, and makes the most lip-smacking biryani.
