Why would an actor playing the assassin by the name of Maggie Q receive the World Tourism Humanitarian Award at the World Travel Market (WTM) London in November?
The assassin is Maggie Q who stared as Nikita, a young woman who was rescued from death row by a secret government agency known as Division. Division faked Nikita’s execution, giving her a chance to start a new life and serve her country. At least, that’s what she is told. In reality, she is trained to be a spy and assassin. This is the most prominent role Actress Maggie Q is known for.
Maggie Q has many faces. She currently stars as FBI Agent Hannah Wells on Netflix’s White House drama “Designated Survivor.”
In her real life Actress, Maggie Q has made a life and death difference for many. Maggie Q has been a major force behind Kageno from its inception 15 years ago when she generously funded the construction of a medical clinic, sponsored ten at-risk children, and donated to Kageno’s healthcare and conservation initiatives. Since then, Maggie has traveled to Rwanda and Kenya to visit Kageno project sites, hosted Kageno events, spoken at fundraisers, and successfully raised awareness of Kageno’s work to the global community.
Maggie Q’s activism has also benefited a major environmental initiative by Kageno in Rwanda’s Nyungwe Forest National Park.
Kageno Founder, Dr. Frank Andolino, said “Maggie’s impact has been powerfully felt by the thousands of people, especially women and children, and ecosystems in the countries and communities where Kageno serves. Her support is key to the success of our mission to transform impoverished communities into places of hope and opportunity.”
This year Maggie’s passion and support will help raise funds for Kageno to build a new full-service maternity center, and an Eco-lodge, the construction of which will give jobs to ex-poachers and jobless locals, and bring tourism dollars into the community.
The World Tourism Humanitarian Award at WTM London is being presented to Maggie Q, Good Will Ambassador for Kageno, in recognition of her humanitarian efforts by raising funds in support of Kageno, an organization that transforms impoverished communities, specifically in Kenya and Rwanda, by focusing on programs for clean water, health care, conservation and education. Actress Maggie Q will receive the World Tourism Humanitarian Award on November 5, 2018, the opening day of World Travel Market (WTM) London, at the ExCel Centre.
