The portal has carved a niche for itself in the news media space with its focus on positive and inspiring stories from various fields ranging from business and education, to health and environment.

Recognizing its contribution in the field of health, the Delhi-based Heal Foundation, a non-profit working for the cause of improving, innovating and implementing healthcare delivery in the country, has now chosen The Weekend Leader for the Heal Health Honours 2018 award.
