Sirajul Islam’s humble plan to bring his country the best of his football skills has encouraged him to work his way up to the title of Generation Amazing Worker Coach in 2018. In his mission to establish a programme that reaches the most impoverished neighbourhoods across Bangladesh, Sirajul wants to enlist values around tolerance, respect and goodwill. These are all qualities he lives by and passionately teaches in his current football coaching sessions across workers’ football grounds in Qatar. Today, 25-year-old Sirajul delivers each of his training sessions with a big smile on his face, fuelled by the knowing that every interaction with his players provides him a feeling of fulfilment. Sirajul meets the world through the many participating workers and looks forward to taking the insight he has gained in his coaching to places that need it the most. He recently achieved his goal to deliver the GA programme to his home country, reaching many children and further edging himself towards fulfilling his role as a community leader.

Mahira Miyanji from Lyari, Pakistan

When Mahira Ahmed Miyanji started Woman Is a Nation (WIN) in 2013, she didn’t anticipate the adversity she would experience for being a female NGO founder advocating for women’s education. Having received numerous threats on her life, and menaces targeted at her family, Mahira reluctantly stepped away from her work. This is until one day in 2015 she took a chance on broadening her horizons and participated in a football programme. That football programme was run by Generation Amazing and through the programme Mahira discovered the joy of football. Here she met a group of like-minded young boys in the GA programme who encouraged her to resume her work on WIN. Mahira has since regained her confidence and moved WIN out of Lyari and into a safer neighbourhood in Karachi. Surpassing her own expectations, she has been awarded an NPeace Award from the United Nations and continues her battle for girls’ rights and education.
