Board of Advisors

Name: Kumayl Nazerali

Position: Founding Member

About me: In the Summer of 2005, I joined AYP in its infancy. It was a new, exciting idea which needed the manpower to be pushed ahead, and I eagerly joined the challenge. From my first meeting in the living room of someone’s house to the office which AYP now resides in Harrow Weald, I saw AYP grow. I remember our weekly meetings, every Friday after college in a coffee shop in Harrow, where we were inspired by the dream to one day finally have a place where we wouldn’t have to pay for our own coffee. I took on role of Project Manager, which meant planning activities, trips and youth club events. In 2008, as a direct result of my learning at AYP I joined the trustee board for V, the national youth volunteering organisation aimed at inspiring 1 million more young volunteers between the ages of 16-25. More recently, I have also become a trustee of the National Youth Agency, which is the sector leader in Youth Work and issues affecting young people.

Board of Advisors

Name: Nazia Malik

Position: Trustee

About me: Nazia joined the Board of Trustees back in August 2008 with a main focus on networking and HR management. She graduated from Balliol College, Oxford in 2006 with a maths degree, and since then has tried to keep the maths dream alive as a secondary level classroom teacher. She has trained and worked in a range of schools in Brent and Harrow, and is currently at St Dominic’s Sixth Form College. She has participated in lots of interesting charity and youth projects both at university and whilst working in London, and recently completed a 2 month job over the summer holidays in the Child Poverty unit in Central Government. Nazia recently ran the British 10k Road Race to raise funds for AYP and found so much pleasure in being physically fit that she is keen to do something similar in the future!

Board of Advisors

Name: Miqdaad Versi

Position: Trustee

About me: Miqdaad grew up thinking he would be a doctor, treat patients and possibly find a cure to some obscure disease. However, he completed his secondary education at Merchant Taylor’s School in 2004, entering University College, Oxford to read Mathematics, from where he graduated in 2007. With a passionate interest in Arabic and Islamic Studies, he studied for a year in Damascus where he continued to develop his modernist and critical approach towards religion.

He joined Ansar Youth Project informally as a Youth Worker leading on camps and residentials. In January 2008, he was appointed Trustee, rising to the post of Chair by the end of the year. In his professional life, he works as a Consultant for Oliver Wyman.

Board of Advisors

Name: Sabiha Kassam

Position: Senior Youth Worker

About me: I’ve been volunteering with AYP for a few years now, and took up the post of Senior Youth Worker only a while ago. As Senior Youth Worker, my role is to oversee youth club on Saturdays, delegate tasks to the fantastic youth workers and work together with management to make AYP as successful and fabulous as possible!

Apart from ‘AYP-ing’ at the weekend, in the weekdays I am a 3rd Year medic, and by night I enjoy the odd cinema trip, theatre trip, dinner, bowling, everything really! My sporting skills are limited to tennis, and swimming (neither of which I play often enough, but I do try!). I do enjoy sitting back with a good book, my favourites are Three Cups of Tea, The Da Vinci Code, and the Harry Potter series! I am a HUGE ‘Friends’ fan, and pride myself in my video collection of all the episodes to date (DVDs weren’t so big in the 90s when I started collecting!).

What Ansar Youth Project does is amazing, I am proud to be part of such a wonderful organisation!

Board of Advisors

Name: Haidar Abdali

Position: Senior Youth Worker

About me: Radar, baby face, or Haidooory are just some of my nick names. I’m one of the Senior Youth workers at AYP which means I’ve been helping AYP for time. When I’m not at AYP I work in a hospital making and fitting fake legs for people that have had amputations. It’s good fun, but not as fun as the youth club. My hobbies include eating good food, and when I’m done, eating some more. I like playing sports that aren’t as common as football, like golf, squash, and cycling. Also sleeping is good fun too.

Some of my responsibilities are making sure everyone apart from the youth workers are having fun, and that everyone leaves the building on time.

AYP brings together a lot of really cool young people. Some of my most interesting conversations have been at youth club. Young people always have fresh ideas about life, and interesting opinions, which often makes me think… I always look forward to chatting to new and old faces at AYP. I hope you’ll enjoy AYP as much as I do!
