Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Chairperson of Qatar Foundation, crowned the winners of the third cycle of the Akhlaquna Award and the inaugural Akhlaquna Junior Award, tonight at a special Akhlaquna Day ceremony in Education City.

The Akhlaquna Award went to the student-led initiative “Yes, I Can,” developed by Noora Hassen AL-Maslamani, Abdullah Ahmed Al-Sada, Fahad Saeed Al-Hamad, Roqayya Khan Khan, Ayub Mohammed Janahi, Ibrahim Aly El Feky, Abdullah Mohamed Al-Ishaq, Shahed Salem Al-Dosari, Nada Juma Aldos, and Ibrahim Yousef Dorzadeh, which aims to highlight the active role and contribution of people with disabilities. The team has organized numerous campaigns – including With Thanks, which highlighted the role of sanitary workers, and Our Land, which is designed to help protect Qatar’s environment.

Other projects shortlisted for the Akhlaquna award and also recognized at the ceremony were Life Engineers, developed by Hamad Abdulla Aljumaily to nurture future leaders aged from 3-18 years who embody moral values, through consultations, workshops, travel opportunities, and summer programs; and Sign Language Translator, created by Noora Talib Almarri and Khalood Zaid Almarri, an application that helps sign language users communicate their needs by translating their hand movements through a glove equipped with motion sensors.

Meanwhile, the Akhlaquna Junior winners for the Grades 1-3 category were Fatima Faisal Al-Thani of Qatar Academy Al Wakra, Hemyen Hamad Al-Kuwari of Athaayen Girls Primary School, and Faisal Abdalla Al-Shahwani of Ali bin Abdullah Model School.

In the category for students in Grades 4-6, Fahad Masoud Nabina of Qatar Academy Al Wakra, Abdulla Rafea Al-Ahbabi of Ali bin Abdullah Model School, and AlHanouf Hassan AlEmadi of Qatar Academy Doha were named the winners, with the awards in the Grades 7-9 category going to Fatima Saad Mohammed Almohannadi of Qatar Academy Al Khor, Mariam Ameen Abdalaa Mohamed Abdalaa Ameen of Moza bint Mohammed Preparatory School, and Bhagath Krishnan of Birla Public School.

The Akhlaquna Award was established by Qatar Foundation (QF) in 2017 to recognize members of Qatar’s community who demonstrate social awareness, compassion, and thoughtfulness toward others, improve society through the example they set, and become leaders and agents of change. The award aims to emphasize the importance of the four values of mercy, honesty, generosity, and tolerance. This year, QF also launched Akhlaquna Junior, designed to honor school students who uphold the morals and values that Akhlaquna seeks to promote and cultivate.
