About the award
Think for Actions is setting up this award to recognize the youth that are contributing to society in a positive way. The award is named after the legacy of Razan Al-Najjar, a 21-year-old medic from Gaza who was killed in the line of duty. Ms. Al-Najjar was shot dead while helping victims during a 2018 Gaza border protest. She is a great example of someone who helped and served her community selflessly- notwithstanding the danger to her own life. This award is thus meant to inspire our younger generation and to instil a sense of selfless service to society.
