An educational foundation set up in honour of the first-ever British Muslim secondary school Headteacher in the UK has won Prime Minister’s Big Society Award. On April 30, Naz Legacy Foundation (NLF) set up in honour of the late Nawazish Bokhari, launched their new Diversity Programme at the National Portrait Gallery.

School children will visit the gallery for the first time and will look in to the lives and experiences of positive role models from diverse backgrounds that have made an impact in the UK. The NLF, founded by Nawazish’s children Hina and Harris Bokhari, aims to continue his work inspiring young people to achieve their potential, promoting excellence in education and programmes spearheading positive integration into society.

The Foundation has raised over £1 million for educational projects benefitting some of the most deprived communities in the UK, including mentoring over 2,000 young people in over 100 schools and institutions across of length and breadth of the UK.

Prime Minister, David Cameron, paid tribute to the Foundation’s “fantastic work to ensure young people across the UK are able to fulfil their potential.” In a message to the launch of the Gallery programme, he said it is “another example of how the Foundation is securing the legacy of an inspirational teacher, Nawazish Bokhari. I’m delighted to be recognising the hard work of everyone at the Ffoundation with this Big Society Award.”

In a statement to The Muslim News Hina and Harris Bokhari spoke of their delight at the award: “Our father was a champion for young people. He believed that every young person – no matter what their background or circumstances – deserved the best quality of education available. We are honoured that his legacy continues in the work of the foundation.”
