Nawaz Pasha is one of GAP's changemakers in Bangalore, India. Mister Pasha is born blind and affected by polio at age 10. He grew up in a poor family, that did not support him. As a teenager he left home and has been taken care for by sisters. They learnt him to always help the people who need it.
In 2011 Mister Pasha started his own trust, named Adarsha. He works in the field of Social Work for 22 years now he helps visually challenged children and teenagers to live their dreams.
