Recognising excellence in social work

Here at Snehalaya we are firm believers in sharing our knowledge, experience and expertise to encourage and motivate the social work which we believe is crucial to our nation building. In doing this we work with many other organisations and individuals to share best practice and models of success. Each year we like to recognise and celebrate those who inspire and motivate us in their contributions to the betterment of society, including our own staff, through our Snehalaya Awards.

This year our awards ceremony took place on the second day of our January Youth Motivational Camp, where the participants who are the social workers of the future heard from and were inspired by this year’s recipients who are all making a positive difference to our society.
