The Hero Award
The Hero Award is conferred upon individuals and groups who have achieved great things on behalf of the UN's 17 Agenda for Sustainability Goals. It was co-founded by Robaba Mohammadi, an artist from Afghanistan who, because of a birth defect, has no use of her arms and legs, and so paints with her mouth. Anyone in the world is eligible to win a Hero Award, as long as their accomplishment is truly ground-breaking and long-lasting in effect.
Art works will be created to commemorate each winner, usually a portrait, sketch or caricature. When these are sold as NFTs, proceeds will be shared between the Robaba Foundation and the winner of the Hero Award. In some cases an NGO or non-profit agency representing the honoree will be the recipient.
