Early Saturday morning on May 12th, 2018, our dedicated students and instructors hit the pool for the last class of the 2017-'18 Swim Season.

May 10, 2018 Founder Amna Javid Honored at 5th Annual Queens Impact Awards
On Thursday May 10th, 2018, Fajr Memorial Foundation Founder and President, Amna Javid was awarded the Queens Impact Award at a gala held by the TimesLedger in Douglaston, Queens.
"TimesLedger Newspapers, once again recognized the people in Queens who make a difference behind the scenes. These are the borough’s unsung heroes who volunteer and work outside the public eye. All of our honorees share a remarkable motivation to help others. The nominees were drawn from a humbling list of donors: a Pakistani immigrant who lost a child in a drowning incident and became an advocate for keeping children safe in the water, a former addict who is working to help others beat addiction, and an Army veteran who is teaching coding to students. We have once again been reminded why we decided to hold this event: to acknowledge the people who have made Queens a kinder and better place to live."
We thank Amna Javid for all the amazing work she does and the TimesLedger for acknowledging her, along with all the other inspiring honorees.
