JSPL Foundation, the CSR arm of JSPL, instituted the ‘Swayamsiddh Samman’ in 2015 to identify, reward and nurture the network of social innovators and change makers at the grass-root level in India. The award was instituted to honour the unsung heroes who overcame adversities in their lives to create their own unique identity, displaying exemplary courage, commitment and dedication towards their cause. The ‘Swayamsiddh Samman’ has so far been conferred upon more than 160 grass root action leaders, both at State and National level.

Last Year, the National level Rashtriya Swayamsiddh Samman elicited an overwhelming response with 358 entries from across the country. Out of these, 203 entries were shortlisted based on laid down parameters. 25 individuals and organisations across the country from different walks of life were felicitated with the Rashtriya Swayamsiddh Samman. The awards were conferred in 10 categories viz. Women Empowerment, Entrepreneurship (start-ups), Education, Agriculture, Rural Development, Public Service / Social Service, Livelihood / Vocational Skills, Health, Innovation / Technology and Environment. Today, these awardees have become ‘Ambassadors of Change’ and are guiding others to achieve their dreams, thus forming a human chain.

Taking this initiative forward, the 2nd edition of Rashtriya Swayamsiddh Samman is being organised to reward and highlight the untold stories of courage and determination of similar grass-root leaders and social innovators in India. The ‘Samman’ will be conferred upon 10 Change Agents i.e. individuals and organisations from across India in the categories of- Rural Development, Health, Education, Women Empowerment, Public Service/ Social Service, Entrepreneurship, Art and Craft, Innovation & Technology, Livelihood/Vocational, and Environment Skills- through a robust process of jury meetings at regional and national levels. O. P. Jindal Global University (OPJGU), will be the knowledge partner in the process of recognizing the change makers whose contributions are worthy of reward and recognition.

Methodology: The Rashtriya Swayamsiddh Samman entails a Pan India outreach to identify, evaluate and honour these grass root change makers. The entries from individuals/ organisations can be either emailed or dispatched to us via post on the below mentioned address.

The entries received from across India - will be assimilated on the basis of regional zones – North: Delhi, East: Kolkata, West: Mumbai, South: Hyderabad. All entries would be evaluated on the basis of critical parameters by regional juries. The selected entries would further be evaluated by the National Jury that will be empowered to select the 10 Change Makers - be it Individuals or Organizations who through their exemplary courage and commitment have brought about a meaningful change in the lives of people around us.
An honorarium of INR 1, 00,000 shall be awarded to 10 Change Agents (be it individuals or organisations) on April 20, 2017 at an event organised at Kamani Auditorium, New Delhi to felicitate these change makers.
