GJNRF wins ‘NGO Leadership Award’ at 13th World CSR Day Congress & Awards

The Gem & Jewellery National Relief Foundation (GJNRF), the apex body coordinating the common social intervention efforts of the gem and jewellery industry in India, was conferred with the NGO Leadership Award at the prestigious 13thWorld CSR Day Awards organised by World CSR Congress and certified by the World Federation of CSR Professionals.

The award was received by GJNRF Jt. Managing Trustee Arun C. Shah and Hon. Treasurer Rajesh C. Shah at the hands of Dr. Rosanna Cavalletto Perdomo, Sustainable Dentist/Author, Sijam Clinic and Helle Lund, National Head – CSR, Partnership & Project Development & Training, Humana People to People India and other dignitaries at an award ceremony held at hotel Taj Lands End in Mumbai on 18th February, 2024.

The awards recognise organisations that can “make a difference to the lives of others… (through) the quality of their work, rural reach and outlook and ability to contribute value to social change”. The selection is based primarily on an organisation’s ability to ‘Make a Difference’, while the breadth and depth of the impact is also considered.

The award is an acknowledgement of the extensive work GJNRF has undertaken over the years for relief and rehabilitation of underprivileged and crisis-hit communities and its ethical approach to such philanthropical work.

Receiving the award on behalf of GJNRF, Arun Shah said, “GJNRF has been a collective effort of the industry backed by Indian and international trade bodies, individual companies from the sector and other foundations established by industry players. Its successful social interventions have been made possible by the efforts of past Chairmen and the members of the Board over the years.”

Rajesh Shah added, “Such awards are a recognition of the far-reaching impact GJNRF has had on the lives of many millions all across the country. GJNRF has carried out mega campaigns of support during times of national crises such as the Orissa Mega Cyclone, Kutch Earthquake, Tsunami, Floods and Droughts in different states over the years and again during the Covid-19 pandemic. Many projects have been focused on strengthening health, education and community welfare infrastructure in the affected regions.
