Originally from Pakistan, Nooruddin spent 10 years in Kenya during his childhood. There he was a volunteer with the international NGO Humanity First. He volunteered at the Dabaab refugee complex; home to the third-largest refugee camps in the world. This experience instilled with him a life-long desire to alleviate the suffering of displaced people across the globe.
His volunteering activities also took him to Pakistan, where he worked on the Water for Life project, focusing on the construction of modern and efficient wells to provide clean water. Nooruddin recognises the need for finding long-term and sustainable solutions that tackle issues from their root causes and have an enduring benefit to local populations. He enjoys learning new things and taking on new challenges as something he recognises good for personal growth to be better equipped to make a difference in the world.
Following his bachelor's in Business, he moved to Lund, Sweden, in 2019. There Nooruddin decided to further hone his skills, in light of ongoing global crises facing our planet, by specializing in global innovation and sustainable development at a master’s level. Nooruddin’s research focused primarily upon the use of sustainable renewables in developing countries.
He is passionate about implementing sustainable, compassionate, and caring practices at both local and international scales. Nooruddin is an avid football-player (a loyal Liverpool fan), keen traveler who loves exploring new places, and is also interested in the future of AI and harnessing its benefits in the developing world
