The CavinKare Ability Awards are conducted jointly by CavinKare, a leading FMCG corporate and Ability Foundation, an NGO for the empowerment of persons with disabilities.
The awards recognize the achievement of people with disabilities from across the country - individuals who have defied conventional, social, attitudinal, physical and emotional barriers in pursuit of their dreams.
The awards fall in two categories, Eminence and Mastery, and include a citation, a trophy and cash prize of Rs.2 lakh and Rs. 1 lakh respectively.
The Award function was held at Chennai last week. CK Ranganathan, Chairman & Managing Director, CavinKare, said, “We are thoroughly happy to witness the CavinKare Ability Awards growing immensely over the years, both in terms of stature and success.” - TWL Bureau
