Pakistani activist Syeda Ghulam Fatima receives Global Citizen award in NY
NEW YORK: Pakistani rights activist Syeda Ghulam Fatima was honored with a Global Citizen award for Leadership in Civil Society during the Clinton Global Citizen award ceremony in New York on Sunday.

Fatima, known for her work towards ending bonded labour in Pakistan's brick kilns, was further catapulted into the global limelight when photographer Brandon Stanton of Humans of New York (HONY) came to Pakistan this summer and helped her raise $2.3 million for her organisation Bonded Labour Liberation Front Pakistan.



A statement from the Clinton Foundation said Fatima was honored for driving a proactive approach toward policy in Pakistan and advocating for core labor standards in Pakistan.

The Ninth Annual Clinton Global Citizen Awards honored outstanding individuals from across the world for their leadership and groundbreaking work that has effected positive, lasting social change around the world in the areas of healthcare, poverty, economic empowerment, legal aid, and women's leadership.
