As a corporate professional, as an individual and as a mother, I admire the kind of work done at SABERA which recognises and raises awareness about social impact. The good being done in the society and the good required for the sustainability of our society in the long run needs to be amplified and SABERA spotlights exactly that. The fact that we will also recognise not for profit organisations is the icing on the cake.
