Nita Ambani was selected as the ‘Corporate Citizen of the Year’ by AIMA for her contribution towards corporate social responsibility through the Reliance Foundation, reports CNBC-TV18.
"The Reliance Foundation focuses on five pillars- education, healthcare, agriculture and rural transformation, urban renewal and arts and culture. For me, corporate social responsibility is not a program, it's a passion and a way of life. So I am quite happy to receive an award for something that I enjoy doing so much," she said on receiving the award.
On the Right To Education Act proposal for 25% reservation for the poor, she said, "I think for me the focus always has been for every child to be able to read and write. I plan to spread education into the interiors in whatever way I can. I think the translation of how we do that is another problem that we need to address."
