Abdul Ghani, a social activist who planted close to 40 lakh trees by himself and many more thousands as part of the Green Kalam initiative, has been awarded World Youth Prize Award-2016 at an event organised by International Youth Committee (IYC). The award is for the people who are below the age of 35 and have shown an extraordinary contribution towards a social cause. While speaking to The Logical Indian, Ghani said, ”I am proud and humbled to receive the highest prestigious award at World Youth Conference in the presence of 500+ Youth Leaders. I dedicate this Award to “My Country -INDIA”.

This award was conferred for the achievement of planting 40 lakh trees, addressing 30 lakh students, organising 5000 social and environment related events, rehabilitating a rag picker’s family, and for organising International Youth Ngo’s Summit (IYONS).
