The Center for Wealth and Legacy recently presented Inspiration Awards to four San Diego leaders, honoring their nonprofit work.

The winners are:

• Azim Khamisa of the Tariq Khamisa Foundation. The foundation works with San Diego schools to teach the realities of violence, forgiveness, gangs and the importance of making positive choices.

• Dr. Kami Kohani of Fresh Start Surgical Gifts. Kohani, a dentist, volunteers for the local nonprofit, which provides free reconstructive surgeries to infants, children and teens with physical deformities.

• Shannon Thompson of Shakti Rising, a woman-centered organization that promotes health, leadership and social change.

• Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah of the Emmanuel Education Fund. The fund benefits disabled people in Ghana, the country of Yeboah’s birth.
