Select Intern Profiles

Rais Badshah is a sophomore Electrical Engineering student at NED University. Rais is not only a NED Scholar, a scholarship fund supporting the most needy students with incredible academic promise, but also a Sawayra Intern getting hands on exposure to engineering design in our Home Solar Team.

“Rais. Rais is from FATA and his family was displaced during the army operation in the northern areas. His family moved to Karachi and his father started working as a ‘chokidar’ before he has a stroke and got paralyzed. Rais, the eldest son, started working at English Biscuit during their night shifts and was saving money to get admission at NED University.” (Dr. Sohail Ahmed, Sawayra Advisor)

We are proud to partner with NED Scholars to find students such as Rais who not only deserve the best education Pakistan has to offer, but practical experience and internship opportunities to further their academic pursuits.
