Zannah Mustapha has helped to transform the lives of children affected by Boko Haram in Nigeria. He founded two schools that offer free education, meals and healthcare to orphans – and even the children of Boko Haram fighters. The lawyer also played a key role in negotiations to free more than 100 kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls. Now his inspiring work has won the UN’s 2017 Nansen Refugee Award. Take a bow, sir.
