When Suleman finishes his education, he hopes to become employed in a challenging position in a
growing company. He would like to get an MBA, which he feels will prepare him for success. Currently,
he is studying in grade nine and lives with his parents, Mohammad Sultan and Sima, and two other
siblings in Geneva Camp. His father earns about $77 a month working in a coal factory.
Suleman has set admirable goals. He wants to form an organization to work for the betterment of
women in society and to empower them with education, access to small business opportunities and
gender equality. He wishes he could do something about drug smuggling, the practice of dowry, and the
lack of education for women, all problems that plague the society around him. Suleman knows that one
day he will be able to do all this: he thinks that if he tries to do something from the bottom of his heart,
he will always succeed.
Suleman greatly admires Mr. Faisal, his math teacher at OBAT’s tutoring center, who teaches students
math in a way that’s easy to understand. He is also inspired by the work of Anwar Khan, OBAT’s founder:
it encourages him to help the poor. Like his other friends, he plays a mean game of cricket.

Who is Anwar Khan, the Pakistani-Hoosier who inspires Suleman? Anwar is the Founder, President &
CEO of OBAT Helpers. He became a Helper in 2004, upon visiting a camp in Bangladesh and learning
about the dire situation that the Urdu-Speaking community had faced for decades. Anwar set the goal to
empower the long forgotten community and help them assimilate into mainstream society as strong,
productive members of their communities. He is a great role model for kids in the Urdu-speaking camps
… and for Hoosiers too.
