Sakina Grimwood (1987-2019) was a passionate activist who touched many lives over the course of her own. Not only did she excel academically, receiving a Masters in Environmental Law With Distinction from the University of Cape Town, but she worked hard towards social and environmental justice.

The Sakina Grimwood Young Activist Award has been set up to support those activists with great potential and who need support to realise their dreams.

Each year over the next five years, two schools will be awarded R5000 per annum. Each R5000 will be split so that R1000 will be donated to each winning school and R4000 to each successful learner's project.
