The story of The NCPEDP Shell Helen Keller Awards started way back in 1999. Over the years, these Awards have come to be recognised as the most prestigious Indian benchmark for honouring people and organisations which have been working towards promoting employment opportunities for persons with disabilities.

The Awards are given away in 3 categories:

  • Category A: Role Model Persons with Disabilities: Persons with disabilities from within the disability sector and outside who have been active as ambassadors of the cause of employment for persons with disabilities and are a positive role model for others.
  • Category B: Role Model Supporters of Increased Employment Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities: Individuals from within the disability sector or outside who have contributed substantially to the cause of promoting employment opportunities for persons with disabilities over an extended period of time.
  • Category C: Role Model Companies/NGOs/Institutions: Organisations from the disability sector or outside who have shown their commitment towards promoting equal employment opportunities for persons with disabilities.

Each year a total of 10 Awards are given away 3 each in the two individual categories and 4 for role model companies/organisations on 2nd December, the eve of World Disability Day.
