A Slumdog wins The DO School Fellowship

Hi, I am Muhammad Sabir, a Slum-dog but a Millionaire in ideas!
I have to collect $1,630 dollars to participate in Sustainable Cup Challenge 2014 being organized by The DO School in collaboration with New York City's Office of Long Term Planning and Sustainability.

I am one of the 20 luckiest fellows who had been selected from round the globe for one-year prestigious The DO School Fellowship.

The DO School has exempted a large portion of my expenses but this amount I have to collect to meet up my daily breakfast, lunch, B1-Visa fee and travelling expense in New York City.

I am gypsy boy now working for rights of slum-dwellers. Since my childhood, I faced extensive discrimination and mistreatment because of my caste by society. From scavenging garbage to selling newspapers at traffic signals, I succeeded in educating myself and my siblings.

I want to establish mobile toilet facilities for slum-dwellers. It will not only provide them protection from diarrhea, cholera and hepatitis but also better economic opportunities as their human waste may be used in producing bio-gas to meet their energy needs and bio-fertilizer to be sold to different nurseries and orchard owners.
My people are my passion. To transform their lives through education and empowering them by providing better living is my only life objective.
