Namma Bengaluru Awards (NBA) has grown in stature considerably since its inception and has become one of the most sought-after awards in Bengaluru. From a Pourakarmikas to an Entrepreneur, nominations of truly deserving candidates from different walks of life have grown steadily over the past 11 years.

Since 2009 NBF is working in association with city based RWAs, NGOs, Citizen groups in Bengaluru and the government with a vision to create impactful and sustainable improvement in the lives of Bengalureans.

In these challenging times of COVID-19, NBF with associate organisations have been able to raise funds and reach out to over 4.5 lac vulnerable with around Rs.24 Crores worth food materials. We also distributed 15,000 masks and 2,500 bottles of sanitizers to spread awareness across Bengaluru in the lockdown period.

NBF organised the Largest Vaccination drive in association with BBMP for citizens above 18-44 years / 45 + citizens in the Urban poor. To boost the immunity of citizens in these areas Namma Bengaluru Foundation distributed over 10,000 Medical Wellness Kits, 10,000 Grocery Kits, Masks & Sanitisers to the Urban poor, Pourkarmikas, needy and the vulnerable. 25 Oxygen concentrators were distributed to the Government Hospitals and vulnerable citizens of Bengaluru.

Why NBA matters

Heroes aren’t always in capes; they don’t always have superhuman powers. Heroes are those who are selfless, heroes are challengers and connectors and most importantly, they are those who always show up. They have worked countless days in improving our city. They are Namma heroes, Namma Warriors.

Namma Bengaluru Foundation is back with its 12th Edition of the Namma Bengaluru Awards which will be a special edition! The ongoing pandemic and the subsequent lockdown and strict curfews have left the world to a halt. However, the medical community & front-line workers are selflessly performing its duties no matter what challenges these individuals are facing in their own lives. These soldiers of humanity are braving this invisible enemy and putting their own lives at risk to keep us safe. We believe it is important to recognise and applaud these warriors for their service towards making Bengaluru a better place to live in.

It’s time to crown Namma Health Warriors, Namma Arogya Yodharu.

A jury panel, comprising of eminent and celebrated citizens, review and short-list these nominations. The entire process is monitored and audited by the jury panel. After further deliberation, Jury invites the shortlisted for discussions and the winners are then selected from among the short-listed candidates.

On the night of the event, winners are awarded a coveted trophy and a cash prize to help pursue their dreams. The recognition becomes a launching pad for them to further their endeavors.
