Harmony Foundation hosted the Mother Teresa Memorial Awards for Social Justice which premiered on December 30th2021. Each year, the Harmony Foundation identifies a theme for the Mother Teresa Memorial Awards that aligns with the need of the hour affecting humanity worldwide. The Award is an annual event that celebrates and commemorates the legacy of Mother Teresa.

“While the Nobel prize was instituted in remorse and apology to the devastating destruction caused by the invention of the dynamite and other high explosives, On the other hand, this award in memory of Mother Teresa espouses her ethos of selflessness and virtues of compassion immortalised even in her living sainthood. Her’s is the legacy of the pursuit of a lifetime in social justice and the enduring face of peace in the face of deprivation and hate globally, for generations to come”, said Dr. Abraham Mathai, the Chairman of the foundation.

This year the foundation embarked on the 17th year of the Mother Teresa Memorial Award felicitating selfless individuals, leaders, youth and organisations who have worked relentlessly in the realm of augmenting Environmental Sustainability.

The Harmony Foundation has been proud to acknowledge the diversity of individuals from various walks of life, from students to corporates, who are no less than the warrior-visionaries of our times and have diligently worked towards the conservation and preservation of our planet.
