Reaching new heights is a metaphor for many who aspire to succeed. For Jamil Mohammed Abubakar, reaching heights is an occupation, passion, and ambition he has performed extraordinarily.
Abubakar is a commercial pilot, having 11 years of experience in this field. His passion for flying planes has led him into opening his own NGO, the JMD foundation. The foundation helps in training young pilots who could not afford or access the conventional sources of training. It enables them to start their career as a pilot, and reach new heights, literally. His love for flying has led him to become a role model for the young generation and lead by example through dedication and hard work. The foundation has done tremendous work in the field and has successfully trained many youngsters, impacting their lives and bringing a positive change by fulfilling their ambitions. His public love for flying planes is not a hidden fact, and he openly declares his passion by training new generations with this expertise. Abubakar has continuously been giving back to the society since he gained the expertise and hasn't once left an opportunity to help others achieve their passion.
