Ahmad Shah had a great meeting with the Director and Program Manager of INL - U.S. Embassy Pakistan on 28th January 2019 in Islamabad, Pakistan. I had shared my brief story with the Director and Program Manager INL - U.S. Embassy Pakistan, how the INL, U.S. Department of State supported program changed my life since my inspiration from 6th Asian Youth Congress (AYC) Bali, Indonesia in 2008. This was a major breakthrough in my career from where I channelized my motivation and activities in the field of Substance Use Prevention & Youth Empowerment around the globe.
Having the support of INL, U.S. Department of State has enabled me to engage with different youth empowerment and drug prevention programs, mainly in: Pakistan, USA, Turkey, Indonesia, Bhutan, Afghanistan, Thailand, Malaysia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Turkey and Kenya.
The INL - U.S. Embassy Director and Program Manager appreciated my contribution in the field of substance use prevention and youth empowerment around the globe.
