In 2008, he completed a year of studies at Daytona State College as a student of the State Department-sponsored Community College Initiative Program CCIP. Following his return to Pakistan, Mr Hussain began initiating numerous community service projects in addition to his day-to-day work promoting volunteerism, education, and ecotourism. He is president of the Pakistan-US Alumni Network,
A media communique by the Department cites the honour of State Alumni Member of the Month as a recognition of Mr Hussain's leadership and promotion of mutual understanding.
Following the announcement, GRACE Association Founder and Chief Executive, Khadim Hussain, said:
In April 2010 Mr Hussain became the coordinator for the local English Access Microscholarship Program at the GRACE Public School, Skardu, in Baltistan. In consultation with his team, he plans to expand this program to other parts the region. Gilgit-Baltistan is situated in the country's remote far north-east, where there is an acute lack of English language skills among children. This can be a serious professional disadvantage in a multi-lingual Pakistan where many businesses and government jobs require employees to speak English. As a result of the program, educational and future professional opportunities have expanded significantly for Gilgit-Baltistan's underprivileged children.
GRACE endeavours to empower and improve the quality of life of the marginalized and vulnerable communities in the least developed parts of Pakistan through welfare, participatory research and development, capacity building, promotion of best practices and partnership building, advocacy, and by launching sustainable and replicable innovative projects.
