2023 RISE Award
The nominee for this award is a pupil in our LASeR project in Tripoli, Lebanon
Hanane Awad is a 15-year-old schoolgirl from Tripoli in Lebanon. She is also an exceptional individual who demonstrates extraordinary drive and compassion. She was selected as a 2023 RISE finalist, and is now waiting for the result after pitching her project.
Hanane's project focuses on addressing food waste in her neighborhood of Tripoli. She has taken it upon herself to collect leftover food from both households and restaurants, ensuring its quality, and then distributing it to families in need. Her project aligns with her passion for helping others and emphasises the importance of sustainability. By preventing the wastage of food from restaurants, Hanane aims to ensure that no food goes to waste while benefiting the less fortunate in her community.
