Bangalore 26th Dec 2016: “No act is small, as every act has the capability to transform itself into an inspiration for others to follow”. This is the thought that holds Parivartan, an initiative by Britt World Wide (BWW), which gave rise to ‘Inspire Awards’.

Namma Mitra Foundation works on projects to address issues around environment, employment, health and education to name a few. Namma Mitra strives to make a difference to develop sustainable employment and business opportunities for rural people, providing them with skills that can also be passed on to future generations. Speaking on the occasion Dr Seemma said “ If there is a vision & passion to work towards your goal then no roadblocks can ever stop you”
