The awards ceremony is the brainchild of Survé Philanthropies and will be honouring individuals and organisations who have made and are making a social impact in education, children, women, human rights, media, technology, and alike.
Director at Survé Philanthropies, Dr Iqbal Survé, said it is an umbrella body for seven different foundations, each with a specific focus area and has been involved in philanthropic work for just over two decades.
“As a family, we have decided to give most of our wealth away. You cannot live in an ivory tower when there is so much poverty on the other side of the city,” said Survé.
Survé says the idea for the awards was born from his family’s personal experiences, having started from humble beginnings.
