Three Pakistanis honoured with Queen's Young Leaders Awards in UK
LONDON - UK's Queen Elizabeth II has honoured three Pakistani youth with prestigious awards in recognition of their services for the community.

Haroon Yasin, Hassan Mujtaba Zaidi, and Mahnoor Syed received  Queen's Young Leaders Awards on Tuesday at a festive ceremony held at the Buckingham Palace. The young stars have made the motherland proud with the big achievements.

It is an annual award that looks for people aged between 18-29 years from Commonwealth nations and acknowledges them for their leadership potential. The award was established via the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust, Comic Relief and the Royal Commonwealth Society in 2014.

Mahnoor Syeda initiated 'Spread the Word' when she partnered with seven schools to hold extra-curricular activities for students on issues like child abuse, anger, and mental and physical health.

She also made efforts for the uplifting of the marginalised transgender community as she raised funds for their vocational training.

Haroon Yasin founded Orenda which aims at providing a chance to children from the underprivileged background for the good education. Through the digital education model, his project teaches children in the country the national curriculum.

Zaidi uses art to help educate young people, who do not have resources, in Pakistan. His creation, Discovering New Artists (DNA), provides free art training, primary and secondary education to students who cannot afford school fees.
