A scholarship of 100,000 rupees (approximately AED 5,000) was awarded to 25 girls who took part in the Indian High School Public Examination.

According to Gulf News, the girls were selected from thousands of applicants based on their Grade 11 results and the financial status of their parents working in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Haseena Nishad wrote on Instagram: “In everything we do, we believe in spreading kindness and positivity by recognizing and helping those in need. Our flagship scholarship program – named after our daughter Almirah Educational Scholarships – awarded to 25 of the top girls in education.”

“We thank the parents of all the winners, who come from all over the UAE. May your daughters continue to make you proud every day!” she added.

Who is Hasina Nishad?

Haseena Nishad is from a community in rural Kerala state and moved to the UAE in 2008 after marrying Nishad Hussain.

Haseena hadn’t considered employment for a long time, but things changed after her children started school. In 2014, Haseena joined her husband in running the business of World Star Holdings, which spans manpower, contracting, facilities management and real estate.
