Wares Fazelyar

Wares Fazelyar, Advisory Board Member

Wares Fazelyar has been an active member in the Afghan community through his involvement with the Afghan Students’ Association at the University of Toronto and the Afghan Women’s Organization. He is most proud of having helped set the foundation for a platform to celebrate and recognize Afghan artists and creatives in Toronto. Wares became involved with AYEDI because he wants to help, Afghans – youth, in particular – develop a stronger capacity to participate in civic life and influence policy. He believes that we each have a part to play in trying to ensure that forthcoming generations inherit a better world than we did. Wares has a deep fascination with history and languages, he enjoys taking walks through the city, and he plays the rubab as a hobby.
