“What is the biggest challenge facing our youth today? Our limiting beliefs about who they are and what they can achieve. Ali Raza Khan’s groundbreaking work with youth in Pakistan shows why many of our assumptions are wrong and how *little* it takes to unleash the changemaking potential inherent in young people.”

Charles Tsai | Sr. Manager, Social Innovation Partnerships Fossil Group

I am witness to Ali Raza Khan’s pioneer work in the field of Youth-led Changemaking. Ali has transformed several thousand students of the Punjab Vocational Training Council from victims to changemakers through his innovative Changemaking Intelligence Test. He has provided a remarkable Tool to unlock the Changemaking Intelligence inherent in young people.

The concept of Changemaking Intelligence has contributed a lot to the development of young women in our region. It has broken down traditional barriers for women. It has made young women self-reliant and job creators. Many of our students, after participating in the Changemaking Intelligence Test, have established their own businesses. The scope of Changemaking Intelligence is very large.

This is a splendid and inspiring read about the author’s insightful experience of working with young people. As an educationist, I have witnessed extraordinary positive changes in several hundred female students who have participated in the Changemaking Intelligence Test. This book offers simple and practical steps to create an inclusive society by transforming young women from passive beneficiaries to changemakers. This is a brilliant piece of work offering new pathways and solutions to deal with present and future challenges. Highly recommended and endorsed.

Prof. Dr. Uzma Quraishi |VC, The Women University Multan

The Changemaking Intelligence Test has awakened dormant abilities of our students. I believe politicians should come and see what real change means. This initiative has broken down many structural, cultural and attitudinal barriers to build a changemaker campus. It is very practical and tangible. I am grateful to Mr. Ali for bringing a new vision to our campus.
