HER WORLD WOMEN AWARDS 2017

Herworld (Malaysia) - - HER LIFE -

Ev­ery year, we hon­our women in­no­va­tors and he­roes who put in the ex­tra ef­fort to con­trib­ute whole­heart­edly to the com­mu­nity. This year, we cel­e­brated the most im­por­tant thing to us all: fam­ily. Two women, in par­tic­u­lar, stood out to us in the way they've taken mat­ters into their own hands to make the world a bet­ter place. Dr Har­tini Zain­udin, a child ac­tivist and co-founder of Yayasan Chow Kit, was awarded the Her World Woman Award – in recog­ni­tion of her tire­less will to give marginalised kids a brighter fu­ture. The Young Achiever Award was given to Mas­tura Rashid, who spear­headed The Nasi Le­mak Project, a plat­form for ur­ban poor fam­i­lies to raise their stan­dard of liv­ing by sell­ing de­li­cious home­made nasi le­mak.
