“A very innovative, democratic and engaging system devised and mastered for selecting the best entries for eNGO Challenge Award South Asia. Keep up the good work.” – Shweta Berry, juror
This year is the 5th edition of the eNGO Challenge Awards and the aim is to recognise and felicitate organisations that have done some exceptional work with communities and people using various kind of new age tools.
On October 24, 2016, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, eNGO Challenge Awards held a day-long jury to choose the best innovators from the total nominations received for the awards at Sanskriti Kala Kendra, New Delhi. The Jury marked the final stage of selection of best innovations for the 5th edition of the renowned eNGO Challenge Awards South Asia. This year, we received 331 nominations across 8 categories (Enablement & Empowerment; Healthcare and Wellness; Education & Learning; Governance & Livelihood; Digital Empowerment & Tools; Heritage & Culture; Entrepreneurship & Outreach and Environment and Sustainability) out of which, 157 were valid nominations. The virtual Jury members shortlisted 62 nominations for the final evaluation by the Grand Jury. A panel of 15 Jury members looked into the filtered nominations.
The jurors felt that it was a great platform to learn and understand the work of NGOs, not just in India but in other countries of South Asia as well.
The finalists have been notified of their selection and the winners will be disclosed on the main event that will take place on 25th February, 2017 at Surajkund Mela Ground, Haryana.
