About our foundation

The Queen’s Young Leaders programme is a dynamic programme that recognises the work of young people across the Commonwealth who are making a difference in the lives of others. As alumni, the Queen’s Young Leaders programme offers a Legacy Grant which is a grant and mentorship to implement an initiative that helps the community across more than two regions. A team of Queen’s Young Leaders: Yaaseen Edoo (QYL, 2015), Kartik Sawhney and Angelique Pouponneau (QYLs, 2016) submitted a proposal that was both ambitious but exceedingly valuable to persons with disabilities across the Commonwealth. The initiative is the creation of an online platform with three key features with the overall goal to increase inclusion and accessibility for persons with disabilities and defeating the perceptions of persons with disabilities.
