Rising Star of ALPS

Jasmine with Zafar

Zafar's age is 18 years old. His father's name is Iqbal and his mother's name is Akhtar. He has four sisters and four brothers. He has been studying in Bahria special education. Zafar has been registered with Special Olympics for the last one year and has now joined the Athlete Leadership training program and is being trained in the special office nowadays. His speech has improved and he has become smart and confident. He is a willing boy and always ready to do all the jobs. He is very regular. He is a responsible boy and does his job in an efficient manner. We pray that he gets more confident, we are trying to teach him money handling and will do it by himself very soon.
