We're a group of like-minded individuals working together to achieve one common goal: to provide disadvantaged youth with virtual programming opportunities.
MEET THE FOUNDER
Founder & CEO
Agha Haider is currently a senior in high school that resides in St. Louis, Missouri. Finding his passion in community service, Agha has been actively involved in service for almost 7 years. From volunteering at an event at the age of 10, to founding his first 501(c)3 non-profit at the age of 13, he is extremely determined to bridge the achievement gap and make a positive impact on economically disadvantaged students across the world.
With his previous non-profit organization, the Literacy Initiative, Agha has been able to distribute over 35,000 books and support 27,000 disadvantaged youth across the world.
Agha decided to form The Education Collaborative after his past organization was affected greatly with the onset of COVID-19. Realizing that it was finally time for a change, Agha decided to put together a new non-profit organization focused on looking at education as a whole, not just literacy. Through this new initiative, he hopes to bring arts-based virtual programming to low-income students across the world.
