Asif Amer is a changemaker turned entrepreneur from Bangladesh engaged in social development work. From an early age, he has seen the effect of economic disparity and other problems arise due to lack of social justice. This has shaped his belief and motivated him to pursue a career in the development sector and utilise the untapped potential of young people from marginalised communities. To envision his dream, he has cofounded a strategic decision making system; the MASTUL Foundation, which designs impact oriented projects based on the SDG framework.
Recently he founded Alleviation 360, a youth organisation which utilises youth participatory based activities to aid community development. His experience made him realise the potential of education in developing the leadership capacity of young people. He is currently pursuing a postgraduate degree in Master of Education and a fellowship with ‘Teach for Bangladesh’.
