The Forbes India name is associated in many minds with our Rich List and our Leadership Awards. But that’s not all we do. Part of our genetic make-up is the belief that business can be a force for good. And when, last year, we launched our Philanthropy Awards, it was just a formal expression of this belief. These awards seek to recognise the efforts of individuals who have created model institutions, people who inspire others to follow their example. Our winners—and our jury members—are role models for active philanthropy in corporate India, people who have devoted time, money, skill and considerable expertise to the creating sustainable models of giving. Their time is valuable, and spoken for many months ahead. The chance to meet and chat with them is something young organisations in the social development sector would value greatly.
That’s why, this year, we’d like to give a few promising young NGOs a chance to do just that. This opportunity is open to young NGOs working in core areas: literacy and education, child rights and abolition of child labour, health and nutrition, and environmental protection (but a great effort in other areas is also eligible).
Please go to this form to apply. Do please pass the address on to people you know who are doing excellent work. We look forward to hearing from many bright, enthusiastic and socially conscious people.
Update: We’re closing applications on Wednesday 13th November, 4pm IST.
