ISTANBUL: Permata, the brainchild of Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor (pic), is getting a 3G Children Welfare Award in recognition of its achievements.

The Prime Minister’s wife, as patron and staunch advocator for children’s welfare since the implementation of the programme in 2007, will receive the award on Permata's behalf during the first Global Good Governance Awards (3G Awards) 2016 cere­mony at Hyatt Regency Hotel here.

Cambridge IF Analytica executive chairman Prof Humayon Dar said Permata, which focuses on efforts in promoting talents and other leadership qualities in children, attracted a large number of global polls, defeating other nominees in the same category.

He said the award was in recognition of the excellent work Permata had been doing for the past few years, and would highlight its success at the international level.

“There are few examples for this kind of success, and I must congra­tulate the Malaysian Government and Permata for taking up this important issue.

“We would like other countries to look at the success stories of Permata and emulate this model.

“I think this is a good service to humanity, coming from Malaysia to showcase how talent can be nurtured from an early age,” said Prof Humayon.

One of the highlights of the ceremony was a performance by 60 Permata Seni children in choir, dance and orchestra.

On Wednesday, the children staged a 30-minute performance at Sabiha Gokcen International Airport here.

Malaysia is expected to receive four more awards from a total of 24 to be presented at the ceremony.

The other four recipents are Universiti Teknologi Mara, Amanah Ikhtiar Malaysia, Agro Bank and the Performance Management and Delivery Unit.

The 3G Awards mooted by Cambridge IF Analytica – a financial services intelligence house – are presented to governments, corporations and non-governmental organisations for excellence in transparency, good governance and social responsibility. — Bernama
