Abhijit Banerjee, a Nobel Prize Laureate in Economics

We commend Mr. Banerjee’s involvement in the antiparasitic and deworming programs with children. These programs have been shown to be effective in improving the health and cognitive development of children in developing countries. It is heartening to know that there are people like him who believe that such projects should be supported and implemented globally.

Children are indeed the foundation of hope for a better future, and it is important that we invest in their health and well-being.  We are delighted to extend this award to you for your exceptional work in this field. Your contributions have been truly remarkable and have made a significant difference in the lives of many as well as the positive and lasting impact on society and its change. We thank you for that!
