The MAD Podcast - Episode 3, Leaving The Pakistan Youth Parliament To Drive Girls Rights; A Man’s Perspective ABOUT THIS EPISODE: Growing up in Pakistan, Ahmed Ali Babar saw and experienced the violence and oppression playing out around him. With a deep desire to Make A Difference, he entered the Pakistan Youth Parliament. From within the political structures, it became clear to Ahmed that the lack of progress and development across sectors within the country could be linked to the lack of women in power, as a consequence of lack of education for girls. Refusing to accept the status quo he embarked on a journey as a truly mad social entrepreneur to not only seek innovative solutions, but to be the change he wanted to see in the world. In this episode, you get to follow Ahmed’s journey, facing religious intolerance, patriarchal societal structures, and the route to overcome social stigmas. Hear what fuels him to persevere through hardships, many times putting his own safety on the line. Last but not least, find out what lies beyond the current horizon, with his even bolder and MADder vision for the future. - Link to Ahmed's work and the Lincoln School System: https://www.facebook.com/LincolnSchoolSystem - Link to the funding campaign to support high quality education for girls in Pakistan mentioned in the episode: https://www.launchgood.com/project/high_quality_education_for_extremely_poor_girls_of_pakistan#!/
