Ms. Shaheen Mistri

  • 2019 Recipient, Development & Welfare of Women and Children Award

I seek to do more for more children because these are not stories that I’ve heard or invented. There is a lot that I do not know, but I do know this. If our children dream not tomorrow, but today. If they believe, not in the way things are but in the way they can be. If they are given opportunities to learn, not just in school but from life. If they love, both themselves and everyone around them, then the world will be a better world - Gentler, Kinder, Fairer. The world will lose a little of its grey and be more full of sunshine.
