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).

The Logical Indian congratulates Abdul Ghani for receiving the award, and we hope he inspires others to take up such initiatives.
