AMAAN’S STORY_

Amaan has been a powerful force in supporting over 1000 labourers in the United Arab Emirates, where tens of thousands of workers hailing from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh travel to the area to work and support their families back home.

Amaan raised a task force of students to regularly visit the labourers, serving food during their religious festivals whether they are Muslim, Hindu or Christian. These times are when workers can feel particularly isolated and lonely, as they are away from their families and otherwise unable to celebrate their festivals and ceremonies.

The programme has made an incredible difference to the worker’s well-being and he is highly respected across the labour camps.

A passionate leader, Amaan has mobilised hundreds more students and organisations to join his cause and support his mission.

Amaan is also a brand ambassador for Protect Your Mom, the Asia Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, and has initiated a food and blanket drive for the Nepal Earthquake relief efforts.

Amaan is knows in his community as an advocate for kindness, empathy and service.
