Yours Humanly Announces Recipient of Its Children Have the Power to Empower® Award
Quarterly award recognizes outstanding acts of goodness performed by young people
By: Yours Humanly
The Children Have the Power to Empower® Award showcases "in service to others" in a meaningful way and demonstrates to family, friends, and community that even children have the power to empower when they lend a helping hand and an open heart.
Jahin Rahman, 16, of Queens Village, New York, received the Children Have the Power to Empower® Award for the outstanding acts of goodness she continues to perform through her nonprofit Efforts in Youth Development of Bangladesh (EYDB), providing thousands of Bangladeshi at-risk and slum youth with the chance to pursue quality education through EYDB's innovative educational and developmental programs. With kindness and dedication, Rahman has raised valuable funds, awareness, and support for her many projects and programs that have benefited thousands of children in need, including the construction of libraries, literacy programs, a school for street children, day care center, computer lab, bathrooms for rural schools, and a drug rehabilitation center.
"We commend Jahin for her compassion and hard work, and for being the kind of person who thinks of others before self," says Yours Humanly Founder & CEO Sunny Singh. "Our Children Have the Power to Empower award recipients are making a difference in the lives of others and we encourage them to continue to do what they can to ease life's journey for those who struggle."
Award recipients receive a personalized certificate and medal, and are profiled on the Yours Humanly website and through social media. To read more about award recipients, and for award rules and an application, visit www.YoursHumanly.org and click on the Power to Empower tab.
