Who was Coach Emad?

Born in New York City and raised in Karachi, Emad Syed Naqvi was a vivacious young man who took pride in his fused identity. He attended Karachi Grammar School and the Lyceum School for his education in Pakistan before returning to the United States for his bachelor’s degree. As a child, Emad knew he was the product of a privileged home, and therefore he believed that his fused identity allowed him to take advantage of the opportunities he had, but also to be able to give back to his community. He spent his adolescent years as an intern at Sind Institute of Urology & Transplantation (SIUT), cherishing the intimate time he got to spend with the children and their families at the institute.


Who We Are and What We Do

Emad died on May 18, 2018 and as the father, when I saw his body for the first time in the funeral home in Boston, , it suddenly came to mind that I will do something in his name. At that time, I had no idea what I will do, may to help 1-2 underprivileged children in their education or something of that sort. I kept talking to people in Boston & in Karachi about my intention to do some charity/philanthropic work in Emad’s name & asking others to suggest how to go about it.
