The David Chow Humanitarian 2017 Award

Nogol Pedram

Nogol Pedram created the Mind the Children Foundation that helps underprivileged children, on an individual basis, in the low-income areas of Southern California with food, emotional support, self-confidence, and personal counseling.  Nogol has provided individual well-being to over 10,000 children from 340 low-income schools.  She currently visits children in Skid Row and various shelters on a weekly basis and broadens their life experiences by taking them on field trips (i.e museums, parks, camping, etc.).

Nogal distributes “Circle of Excellence Certificates”, or food certificates, to help parents feed their children.

Nogol believes that when someone takes the time to personally care, feed, counsel, and motivate underprivileged children on a one-on-one basis, it creates a healthier and more productive environment for these young lives and their communities.
