A 15-year old student of Olashore International School, Miss Adjwoa Awe, has received an award for going the extra mile to create and sustain a positive change.
The award winner had an active role in the development of several new projects in her community.
Her activism began with the development of Our Voices Have to be Heard, an initiative committed to raising awareness of child rights and prevent abuse.
Recognising the further needs of her community, she and her schoolmates followed this project with Healing Every Living Person, to combat poverty by equipping young people with skills through entrepreneurial training. This brought a tremendous impact in Awe’s community with 100 new subscribers to the programme.
Her kindness and leadership have provided essential skills for her community and inspired others to take similar positive action.
On Wednesday, July 1, 2020, Miss Awe was one of the persons celebrated at the 2020 Diana Awards held virtually to celebrate all the awardees’ amazing achievements and introduce them to the rest of the world.
The Diana Award is the highest accolade a young person can achieve for social action or humanitarian efforts. It was established in memory of late Diana, Princess of Wales, with the award given out by the charity of the same name, with the support of her two sons, The Duke of Cambridge and The Duke of Sussex.
Speaking on the award, the CEO of The Diana Award, Tessy Ojo, stated, “We congratulate all our new Diana Award recipients who are changemakers for their generation.
“We know by receiving this honour they will inspire more young people to get involved in their communities and begin their own journey as active citizens.
“For over 20 years, The Diana Award has valued and invested in young people encouraging them to continue to make a positive change in their communities and lives of others.”
Reacting to the development, the awardee’s parents, Olugbenga and Linda Awe, expressed their appreciation, thereby stating, “We are proud of the impact our daughter is making in co-creating sustainable livelihoods.”
“She has our continuous support,” the parents assured, noting that, “We also commend her school Olashore International School Iloko-Ijesha in creating the conducive environment for her as she nurtures her dreams.”
The blockchain brings new financing options to the business market. For example, Bitcoin Cash casino has adapted to only using cryptocurrency. This way, it makes it easier for their customers to deposit and withdraw in a BCH casino. Entrepreneurs have taken note of this and are looking to invest more in crypto than in fiat markets.
