Maharashtra Go Green Foundation (NGO) in association with Kasber Dance Academy has organized a (SHE) – Social Healing Entrepreneur’s Award 2013 with the theme: Caring for the Creation” on the 8th of March 2013 (International Women’s Day) at Dr Kashinath Ghanakar hall (Mini Theater) from 3 pm onwards. An initiative by The Maharashtra Go Green Foundation to honor the commendable work done by NGOs, Corporate and Government organizations in the fields of Health, Education, Environment, Livelihoods and Empowerment There has been undoubted progress post India’s independence but it is overshadowed today by persistence of poverty, ignorance and disease among a vast number of our fellow citizens. While most people will agree with this, they despair at the vastness of the problems. Some close their eyes and strive only for personal advance. Others hope that state policies will somehow change the prevailing order.
Fortunately for Thane, there are wonderful and amazing people and organizations that have been battling enormous odds and making great personal sacrifices so that the lives of disadvantaged people are changed for the better. To acknowledge and honor these unsung heroes of Thane, Maharashtra Go Green Foundation has decided to institute ‘(SHE) – Social Healing Entrepreneur’s – Award. The MGGF Awards will help focus greater attention on five critical spheres: education, healthcare, livelihood, environment and advocacy/empowerment. As we want to credit outstanding contributions from different sections of society, there will be three different categories in each of the five spheres – a non-governmental organization (NGO); a corporate-backed organization; and a government body at the city level. Widespread and tangible impact, Individuals, which has the quality of changing lives forever, is the key criterion for these awards. We are pleased to honor all the good people for their wonderful social work they all have been doing for the underprivileged.
