Team SoL


Hammad Saeed

Chief Executive Officer

I like making sense out of a mess and I’m not just talking about untangling earphones. I like the idea of figuring out patterns and connecting the dots. Challenges drive me. If I could have any superpower, I’d choose super speed (no more traffic jams!).

Maalik Khaskhely

Executive Director

When troubled by existentialist questions, my solution is simple: I find meaning in life when forming lasting connections with people and nature. Making an indelible impact on someone’s life is what truly matters to me. I dream of becoming a successful philanthropist one day.

Umair Jaliawala

Director & Consultant

I’m still searching for a way to pack five lives into one. When not switching roles between my other four lives, I can sometimes be found at gaming night with the boys. In an alternate universe, I’d probably be a cricket commentator. Pet peeve: slow drivers in the fast lane.  

Burhan Shah

Master Trainer & Senior Consultant

I believe style makes a man and conversation lead to a greater connection between people, as they say barriers break when people talk. I live by a simple philosophy, ‘live to find your passion’. If I was a superhero, I’d choose to replicate the life of Batman because ‘I am Burhan Shah’.

Waqar Ali

Lead Trainer & Consultant

The 9 to 5 crunch is not my cup of tea. I believe in getting results, the timings are secondary! I live to see the beauty in little things: peaceful places, walks on the beach, long drives. I feel that the only way to be happy is the realization that there’s more to life than money and materialistic things.

Sufyan Rizvi

Head - Accounts & Finance

Accountant by day, counter-terrorist by night (and on weekends!). I may not have a secret identity but being part of a Counter Strike clan has its own responsibilities. I don’t like the idea of not being able to express my thoughts and honestly, presentations make me nervous.

Areeba Zubairi

Head – Communications

My name is Areeba and I’m a shopaholic. There, I said it. I’m the person who believes that when the going gets tough, the tough go shopping. If I walk into a makeup or clothing store, chances are I won’t come out empty handed. Things my life is incomplete without: selfies, vampires & bbqs.

Marziyya Malik

Head - Programs

When it comes to work, there is no holding back. I bring to the table a diverse set of talents which has allowed me to serve in a number of different capacities. I believe it’s safe to say, I am a proud workaholic. You may find me straight forward but like it or not, it is what it is and you have to make peace with it!

Mariyam Irfan

Head – Education Function

You know those people who are perpetually chirpy & happy and find small reasons to celebrate? I’m one of them. I read, I dance, I enjoy rain and cold weather. I’m fascinated by the folklore surrounding vampires, witchcraft and fairies. Oh, and a little secret: I can be plied with chocolate!

Keenjhar Khoso

Project Manager

Work and Dance make a good combination, you should try it out; it releases stress and enhance productivity, guaranteed. They say, I am an excellent secret keeper. If you have any stories to share, I am your person.

Arsal Fahim

Manager Accounts & Finance

In the midst of the monotony of everyday life, I’m on a quest to answer some profoundly philosophical questions (okay maybe not answer but ponder!). For me, weekends need to be treated with the respect they deserve -- that means uninterrupted TV time!

Mehak Ameer

Lead - Young Leaders Conference

My name is Mehak and I am a workaholic. There I said it! They say I can play a very good detective because I like getting into the depth of things. I believe, focusing on details is what get things done. Oh and if I need to get things done, you might watch your back because I am coming for you and I won’t rest till its done. *grins*

Darakhshan Rabdino

Lead - Junior Leaders Conference

In the past few years, I have emerged as a talking bird. I love to talk but only to those who are close to me. I am very eager to ask questions and learn because that’s what keeps me going. Things that hold infinite charm for me are traveling, food, chocolates and cats. I love meeting new people and getting to know them

Mujahid Arain

Head of Admin & Procurement

I believe policies make an organization; one should also follow them to have the desired discipline in life. No matter how tough the challenge, my approach has always been 'bring it on'. There is never a challenge too difficult for me to handle.

Kashif Ansari

Associate Accounts & Finance

My spare time is divided between the gym and the other love of my life: sleep. Although I’m not generally a movie person, Mohabattein is one of my favorites because I’m inspired by the idea of people coming together. If not at my desk, I can be found humming in the office corridors.

Wajiha Mansoori

Associate Database & Admin

I am an open, fun-loving person who is always up for adventure. I am very social so I love to meet new people and make new friends, and draw my strength from others. My firm belief that as individuals we must constantly grow and evolve ensures that I am always ready to try new experiences!

Noman Rahim

Associate Admin & Procurement

Though my main interest lies in learning more about computers, I wouldn’t say I’m a computer geek, glued to my laptop all day. Playing outdoor sports like cricket and football is just as much fun for me! Things that brighten up my day: surprise visits from the people I love.

Ravi Maheshwari

Associate Admin & Procurement

I believe clothes make the man. You wouldn’t be too far off the mark if you were to call me a shopaholic. One day, I want to take a bike tour of Pakistan and then the world! I once fought off a herd of deer in Balochistan (ok, that might be the slightly exaggerated version of the story!).

Niamat Khan

Associate Admin & Finance

When I’m not at the office, my life is a balancing act between being a teacher and a student. I am constantly on a journey to learn more. Learn more about what? It can be anything, really! I just like the idea of gathering as much knowledge as I possibly can about anything under the sun.

Shezray Kiyani

Project Associate

I am one of those adventurous kind of people who wouldn't hesitate in trying out new things. Monotonous is the thing that puts me off and makes me feel low. So I take everyday as a challenge to learn exciting new things and grow as a person. Oh yes while I am working, do not mess with me, I might just lose my temper.

Sara Abid

Project Associate

I am an extremely upbeat individual, and I needn't bother with a greater motivation to be cheerful. If I set my mind at something chances are that I would make a huge effort to complete it. I am a very motivated and enthusiastic person who is willing to take up every challenge and prove herself that she’s no less than others.

Azhar Hamza

Project Associate

I like to add a little bit of everything to my scope of work and that keeps me super motivated. When it comes to completing tasks, I am always on top on my game. Little do they know the minor panic attacks I get in between. But by the end of all the chaos, you will find me relaxing at a corner with a book in my hand.
