Award For Community & Social Service

There are many amongst us who are doing selfless services for the welfare of the under-privileged and the marginalised in the society. They provide solace, encouragement and train them to face life with dignity. Their activities empower the weak and provide opportunity to escape the clutches of poverty and alleviate their sufferings.

The award is given to inspire people to do selfless service to the society for the needy and poor. The award is for excellence in human endeavour in the field of Community and Social Service.

The activities of the nominee may include the following:

  • Supply of pure drinking water, initiation and improvement in sanitary facilities, low cost balanced diet.
