"I had an opportunity to work with Zahra during Karachi Biennale 2017. During this time she was invaluable in designing the Educational Program. She was also a part of the Teachers Workshop. She contributed beyond her role and was instrumental in the success of the spice garden. I have found her to be a person who is self-driver and who takes an initiative. "
Head of Education Program- Karachi Biennale
"I have known Zahra both personally and professionally, for over a decade. Her keen interest in the environment and her share in improving the ecosystem is highly commendable I have seen very few people who pick up a problem, find a solution and create a market for it. With Startups like Crops in Pots Learning Garden and Organic City, she has a done exactly that."
COO Genetech Solution, Founder Code Girls
"Without any qualms, Zahra is outstanding to implement the pragmatic knowledge of sustainability in Pakistan. She is a quality instructor with solid ground of indigenous knowledge and would become an asset for any organization."

Meritorious Professor, Department of Geography, University of Karachi
"Zahra worked on USaid funded project, ‘Sustainable Sultanabad’ with Shehri in 2014. We found her to be an excellent teacher, communicator, and community mobilizer. She was able to gain the trust of the community and train and guide them well in achieving the project objectives. She also produced extremely relatable learning air for the school children and the community. "
