Our Story

Hafeez and Hiren are the Co-Founders of The Inspire Project. They have a comical, somewhat unconventional and close friendship that dates back over a decade. They bonded over their love for travel, personal growth, gaining a global perspective and searching for a meaningful path. They have both lived and worked all over the world and decided, after each had uniquely meaningful experiences with youth development programs over the past decade, to develop The Inspire Project.

     

They have both been involved in serving as Counselors and Directors for these youth programs globally for the past 15 years. The Inspire Project stemmed from these experiences and their realization that a combination of location, access and exposure precluded thousands of students who could benefit from these transformative programs. The Inspire Project curriculum is a reflection of the mentorship, career guidance and global exposure Hafeez and Hiren sought when they were in high school and wish for all future generations of students.

Hafeez and Hiren developed The Inspire Project with the understanding that diversity would be a core strength of the program, and that all Participants, regardless of cultural background, prior experiences or financial means would be able to join this one of a kind experience.
