This news has come as a breath of fresh for the youngsters and largely every Pakistani because people from Baluchistan don’t get the representation that they deserve. They also don’t get enough opportunities to make a mark for themselves nationwide and across the globe as well. So, to see them doing well in life and getting recognition for that seems like a great change.
The young man bagged the award for helping over 5,000 young people as a career advisor and designing various youth-focused projects. His welfare organization, Chiragh, has provided monetary educational incentives to youth during the pandemic.
Moreover, Izat Ullah also installed handwashing stations in ten schools and handed over Corona Hygiene Kits to over 5000 children in 30 schools.
