Sakib Profile



Sakib grew up in the streets of Old Delhi. Attempts to school him failed. He realized early on that street life and community educated him better than the classroom and textbook. After spending a few years making sandwiches at the airport, he chose to forge his own path. He began by learning slow food cooking and urban farming. His other talents include clowning, upcycling and drumming. ​

He acts in plays in Mandi House and clowns in hospitals to make the sick smile. He's an upcycling master who weaves magic with all kinds of rubbish.


Tribal rhythms pulsate through his drumming and have

made him the beating heart of many alternative learning convergences.

He makes natural buildings, soaps, detergents, jewellery, colours and detergents.


University of Streets

Sakib founded ‘University of the Street’, in 2018 where he designs learning journeys and adventures for other street kids like himself.

He also works for Edible Routes, making kitchen gardens, conducting workshops, and doing natural construction. When not travelling, he finds himself in Delhi.
