Mr AbdulBasith SyedIbrahim was recognised with an Ambassador for Peace Award for following in the footsteps of his grandfather - who, among other things, was a freedom fighter, back in his homeland of India. “I want to follow his legacy,” he said, “I’m both proud and honoured to support young children in India.” Mr Basit’s own trust organisation aims to help young orphans and provide them with welfare, regardless of their religious background. “We are born from the same blood and flesh, so there should be no boundaries,” Mr Basit added. In regard to receiving the award, he said: “This award gives me a lot of encouragement for what I do and it motives me to do more, thank you UPF”. Currently, Mr Basit is working on a project to provide life-saving medicine to children in Myanmar.

An Ambassador for Peace Award was presented to Mr Jamil O. Eniola, for his work in his home country of Nigeria. Mr Eniola founded the HEN Foundation which offers basic education, health care and, most importantly, empowerment, to young children in Nigeria. “We want to give them responsibility,” said Mr Eniola, “Everyone wants to restore their own dignity to, for example, take their family out of poverty.” Mr Eniola shared how he strives to be a peace-maker which is why UPF’s vision resonates with him. “Peace wants nothing,” he said, “We must understand each other as brothers and sisters.” He is deeply grateful that UPF have recognised his efforts in aiming to bring about peace. On looking to the future, he said: “My main ambition is to become someone who can make a positive impact and leave a legacy for others to follow.”
