Rohayl Varind (روحیل ورنڈ) is an International Award Winning Social Entrepreneur, Innovator & Activist.

Winner of World Summit Youth Award 2014-2015 in Sao Paulo, Brazil from 1898 submissions, spanning 138 countries, impressing a panel of 40 jurors from all corners of the globe. Moreover World Summit Youth Award is considered as World's biggest youth award.

Born in a modest Muslim family in Pakistan, Rohayl, began developing deep faith in the humanity and its diversity at a very raw age. But more so, he was appalled by what humankind was going through, not just his own home country Pakistan, but in the world too. Corruption, inequality, lies, apathy, crimes, injustice and what not. Although, he could've shut all those feelings out and lived like an average teenager, but he didn't. In fact, he let them flow out from a very young age of 14.

Today, Rohayl is a well known symbol of social justice & humanity to thousands across Pakistan. With high hopes and dreams, he intends to make Pakistan a country, the Quaid had envisaged.

Rohayl Varind, was like any usual kid of a developing nation, until one day in his teens he realized that he was not satisfied with how this world has shaped up, especially his country. A country where there's portrayal of so much hatred and loss and so little good and lesser smiles being propagated and much lesser an awareness regarding the things going wrong. A definite and unrelenting urge overcame him and despite of limited resources, he nurtured and still nurtures unlimited dreams to make Pakistan and this world a better place to live.

To achieve his goals, he may face many enemies, many hurdles but he is strongly determined to liberate his fellow Pakistanis from their miserable lives because of corruption, poverty and injustice that has crept into the roots of the country weakening its integrity, come what may!

Along his journey towards peace, he has been through unimaginable turmoils and yet received unthinkable happiness-es. It has been a path of not just giving smiles and affection, but also receiving blessings which otherwise would have been impossible. Currently, he keeps treading the path of revolution to attain his objectives and principles for the betterment of mankind and his nation alike, while accomplishing new heights along the way.

At first, it was a usual norm to face heavy criticism in a resource-lacking and still growing nation like Pakistan. Yet, the sheer number of people that joined in the journey and all the love, support and, above all, the prayers that he received have been the biggest rewards. No world record or award can match that.

-Winner of World Summit Youth Award 2014-2015

World's biggest youth summit award. Being chosen by 40 Juror from amongst 1898 developers, innovators & social entrepreneurs who contended from 138 countries was enormously breathtaking. His revolutionary work and services for humanity and his nation were duly respected, and he was invited to Sao Paulo, Brazil this year to receive the award for his hard work, dedicated activism and bold social entrepreneurship.

Founder - Solar School Bags

Pakistan's First Solar School Bags. Our Solar School Bags are fitted with a portable solar panel, battery and a box that turns bulbs on by providing up to 8 hours of light for studying & doing homework at night.

Our Solar School Bags helps and support not only 1 child but minimum 12 children. As our solar bags has long lasting battery with 2 bright bulbs with long wires.

Kids living in slums & underprivileged areas of Pakistan mostly don't have sources of light to study at night, or to do their homework because of no electricity. Our Solar School Bags charge during the day so children can study at night. Our Solar School Bags can help and support not only 1 child but the whole family. Our Solar School Bags are also a source of help for the family in their household chores for e.g cooking, sewing etc.

There are still several areas of Pakistan that don't have adequate access to electricity. This means at night-time, entire communities are plunged into darkness. In order to ease these everyday problems, Rohayl Varind transformed simple School Bags into Solar School Bags.
