Mehwish Hayat has added another feather to her hat of accomplishments. The Tamgha E Imtiaz recipient has now been named as the Goodwill Ambassador for rights of the girl child by the Human Rights Ministry of Pakistan.
“Delighted to be appointed by the Ministry of Human Rights as their Goodwill Ambassador for the rights of the girl child. This is something very close to my heart & I look forward to actively raising awareness of the issues to be addressed. Lets give girls the better future they deserve,” wrote Mehwish on her social media.
Addressing her audience in a video, Mehwish stated, “It is an honour for me to play a crucial role in helping girls get their rights. I wish to see a Pakistan where girls are given the opportunities to get education.”
Adding further, Mehwish also appealed to all Pakistanis to come forward and support her in mission to give girls the better future they deserve.
“Lets give girls the better future they deserve,” said Mehwish. Today, the world celebrates the International Day of the Girl Child, and what best to honor them by appointing an ambassador who’s not only committed but bold and strong enough to take that plunge for the little girls and what they rightfully deserve.
Mehwish Hayat was also appointed the Muslim charity Penny Appeal’s brand ambassador and recently made it to the list of The Muslim Vibe’s top five Muslim women in the world.
Back in August, Mehwish Hayat was also awarded the Pride of Performance in Norway where she used the platform to highlight how Pakistan was being targeted with negativity and that a better representation of the country was needed in the media on an international scale.
