AWARD HONESTY TO ERADICATE CORRUPTION IN COLLABORATION WITH HONESTY FOUNDATION
Tired of the rampant corruption in the society and the ineffectiveness of slogan shouting and street protests against corruption Bernardo D’ Souza came up with a positive venture of promoting honesty. With the support of his family he established HONESTY FOUNDATION with family earning. Through the Foundation he wants to organize activities to promote honesty. The first activity was instituting HONESTY AWARDS for the children in the schools. It was launched in collaboration with USM as it is a Movement committed to promote value based education over the last twenty four years. HONESTY FOUNDATION was formally launched on 30th December, 2012 at Indore on the occasion of the 45th KNIT INDIA. Two students were given the first HONESTY AWARDS on that occasion. They were Juhi Shrivastava from Delhi and Anshika Jain from Agra. In 2013 honesty award was given to six students. Thereafter Honesty Award is given every year to the selected candidates.
Fund for HONESTY FOUNDATION is raised from the family business of Bernardo. He does not take funds from Government. Bernardo believes in giving back to the society because all profit and prosperity come from the society. He sincerely believes that everyone is duty bound to give back to the society. He intends to spend one third of his wealth for the society by supporting activities which promote values, especially honesty.
