Award For Human Excellence
The finer human qualities of compassion and selfless service to society
create a ripple effect that collectively become waves that bring about
the transformation of society. TAFE seeks to recognize and celebrate
individuals and organizations who embody this purest form of human
excellence. Toward this, TAFE sponsors the Sri Sathya Sai Award for
Human Excellence to be awarded on an annual basis to distinguished
individuals who demonstrate an exceptional ability to hold steadfastly to
their values and remain committed to the betterment of society through
consistent, compassionate, magnanimous actions and lead by example
as singular torchbearers of humanity.
The awardees selected in 2016 included remarkable women and men who played pivotal roles in transforming countless lives through selfless service.
The nominees included individuals from around the world with an emphasis on candidates from the emerging world - India, South Asia, South-East Asia, Middle-East, Africa and Latin America. Nominees were recognized in six categories - Education, Environment, Health, Music & Fine Arts, Unity of Religions, and Woman & Child Welfare for their tremendous contribution that positively impacted the lives of people, both on a national and international scale.
The awardees embody the life, work and philosophy of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, who tirelessly advocated that assiduous and courageously selfless service alone, in the true spirit of love and compassion, could heal holistically and leave behind an indelible imprint on humanity.
