Ladies Study Group Charitable Trust Annual Awards

The Ladies Study Group Charitable Trust Annual Award Scheme was initiated in 1975, commemorating the International Women's Year to give recognition to initiative and merit in field of social work. The Award is presented in recognition of an institution or individual's outstanding contribution and commitment to helping the underprivileged. The Award not only provides financial help but also recognizes their selfless dedication towards bringing change by overcoming debilitating circumstances or physical challenges.

The LSG 2020 award honoured and supported the outstanding initiative, and the selfless dedication of charitable institutions and non-government organizations, working towards uplifting the underprivileged sections of society. This year's theme was recognition of exemplary work done towards the welfare of women and children in exceptionally challenging times.

The prestigious LSG Charitable Trust Award for the year was given to 'Calcutta Rescue', spearheaded by Mr Jaideep Chakravarti. He shared that their organization served the poorest communities in Kolkata and its surrounding districts. Their beneficiaries including pregnant and children needing medical aid, were acutely distressed due to the pandemic. They reached out to them through novel initiatives, including mobile school vans for young children who lacked the resources to go online.
