SRK Knowledge Foundation is dedicated to the cause of humanity, mainly in health, education and upliftment of the needy. In accord with the vision, Shri Govind Bhai instituted the Santokbaa Award in 2006, in the loving memory and honour of his mother, Santokbaa. Her selfless devotion and humanitarian values inspired him to further her mission by honouring altruists from various fields. The award’s trophy has been designed along with her ideals rising from the soil; positivity, care, love, appreciation and collective growth. The core values are global and shared by all human beings.
The foremost objective of the Santokbaa Award is to impact society positively, permeate strong values and encourage the youth to spread compassion and competing ideologies. It is awarded to those individuals whose life and work are characterised by their selfless service, inspiring millions of lives and the society at large.
The prestigious Santokbaa Award has been conferred to many eminent personalities from distinctive backgrounds, including one of the world’s greatest spiritual leaders, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. The Dalai Lama’s life is guided by three significant commitments, which have also been the cornerstones of the Santokbaa Award. These values are –
- Promoting fundamental Values in the interest of Human Happiness
- Fostering Inter-Religious Harmony
- Preservation of Peace and Non-Violence
The world has some exceptional people who work tirelessly for the benefit of the human race. It is our great honour to recognise their incredible efforts and achievements with the meritorious award. Rare are such souls who rise from the soil, above caste, creed and demographic locations and fulfil the aspirations of people. Santokbaa Award is our way of saying, on behalf of the entire human race to these brilliant personalities – “You Inspire Us!”
