Another Win For Zaf!


Community Hero Wins Inspiration Award at GG2 Leadership Awards 2015


A Birmingham man has been awarded the Inspiration Award at the GG2 Leadership Awards 2015.

Mohammed Zafran, a community activist from Small Heath, has been showered with accolades recognising his remarkable dedication to promoting motivation and competitiveness in youngsters within Birmingham.

The story of Zaf is no secret. Having lost his sister and brother in-law in the space of one year, he was moved to channel his grief and anger into transforming the lives of young people across the Midlands.

Through this, Zaf was able to make a positive impact on more than 10,000 young people across the region. By involving youths, who would have otherwise been up to no good in the streets and parks of Birmingham, in sports and education, he kept them busy and out of trouble.

The father-of-two was motivated into reaching out to youngsters after his brother-in-law Sarfraz Khan, 23, was fatally stabbed in Larches Green Park, Sparkbrook, in March 2010.

A recipient of the British Empire Medal earlier this year, Zaf’s ever-growing collection of high profile awards recognising his work include the National Diversity Award, Pride of Birmingham Award and Bobby Moore FA Award as well as the Pride of Sport Award.

The annual GG2 Leadership Awards, a unique platform for celebrating multicultural Britain, rewards talent from across all BME communities.

The GG2 Leadership Awards writes of its winners: “The winners of the GG2 Leadership Awards are high-profile achievers in their field, inspiring, leading and motivating by example. They are often beacons who shine a powerful light on their industry and encourage others to go forward and make the case for diversity.”
