A triumphant effort towards social welfare
S M Sammam Sakti Ibn Sahadat from Bangladesh won the 4th Annual ISIE INDIA Excellence Award 2021, earning the title of 'Visionary Leader' from the judges of the ISIE INDIA Excellence Award committee. Imperial Society of Innovative Engineers (ISIE) is a renowned international E-mobility learning platform connected with India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Sammam is a student of Mechanical Engineering at Lovely Professional University, India. He always wanted to be a doctor. However, due to the demise of his father just a few days before his HSC exams, he failed to attain an exemplary result. During this time, his mother Ratna Parvin Rupa supported him and inspired him to work for the education of deprived children.
He was the Modelling Director of Online Model United Nations (OMUN), a sister concern of the United Nations that is dedicated to attaining Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). He was also the Deputy Secretary-General of International Affered Dialogue, a department under the OMUN.
His experience as an exchange participant in the prominent youth leadership organisation AIESEC, further aided him when he became the Youth Delegate of the Event and Programming department for UNITE-2030, a programme empowering youth leaders towards SDG enactment.
Sammam participated in the SDG-based campaign "UNITE 2030: Youth Action for Better World", where he bagged the title of 'Most Aspiring Youth Activist and Global Youth Leader'.
"I feel proud to represent Bangladesh in different international platforms," shares Sammam. "I have been involved with social organisations based in India such as Howard Smiles and Eminent Organisation,
among many others. Recognising my passion for social welfare, Lovely Professional University nominated me for ISIE India."
Currently, Sammam is the Global Peace Ambassador of Global Peace Chain, an organisation that works towards SDG 16, promoting just, peaceful, and inclusive societies.
His project, 'Education for All' is supported by the Young Changemakers Programme of The KidsRights Foundation in Amsterdam, Netherlands. 'Education for All' is currently active across 12 nations around the world. "I want to ensure free quality education for underprivileged children globally. I dream of increasing Bangladesh's literacy rate to a hundred percent by 2030," concludes Sammam.
