Nominated by School of Leadership Foundation

All 2021 Children’s Peace Prize Nominees

Mahnoor advocates for the education of girls. During Covid-19, when all the schools were closed, Mahnoor set up a centre in the village and gathered all the children there and started teaching children. As a result, not only many children in her community received education, but various institutions sent help by means of books and other educational materials as well. Mahnoor was nominated Ambassador by the School of Leadership, named Youth Hero by UNICEF Asia and she was nominated for Chanan Development Association (CDA) for the Youth Peace Grant. In the future Mahnoor will continue to work for children’s rights and she will contact more organisations who are working on children’s rights.
