This award is an annual recognition of people from the corporate world who are actively involved in the field of corporate social responsibility.

The Tata group is a living example, perhaps the only such business conglomerate, which places 65% of its shares in the hands of Tata trusts. Tata Consultancy Services, the company that I have been with for 38 years of my life, has leveraged its expertise in IT and software services to create new tools that enhance reach and efficiency of those that do charitable work.” said S Ramadorai.
In the past, the VAF has recognized Sir Ben Kingsley, Sir Sidney Poitier, President George HW Bush and President Bill Clinton.
The VAF brings hope, help and healing to the defenseless and innocent victims of disease, tragedy and circumstance in India. It supports sixteen different charities in India promoting education, village development, cornea treatment and the rescue of young girls from prostitution, amongst other causes.
