Fellow Since 1996
Gul Bahao Trust
This description of Nargis Latif's work was prepared when Nargis Latif was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1996.
Nargis Latif has developed a campaign to help solve the staggering waste disposal problems of the city of Karachi and to encourage broad adoption of environmentally and socially responsible waste disposal practices. The core of her initiative is an imaginative recycling program that is carefully attuned to the city's economic and social conditions.
