In a world of rapid economic development and continuous advancements in the human quest for growth, certain challenges arise on social and economic levels which need deep understanding and support. A prominent NGO headquartered in Pune, Spherule Foundation, has brought about significant change in the lives of thousands of people through its focused social initiatives.
In a matter of great pride for the organization, Spherule Foundation’s Founder and Director, Dr Geeta Bora, has been honoured with the Atma-Nirbhar Bharat Conclave & Awards 2022.

Seeding the Cause
With the solid experience of 14 years in the IT industry as a Software Architect in India and the US and working in making education accessible and affordable to all through technological applications, Dr. Geeta observed and identified the plight and challenges faced by people in India. She decided to stand up for the cause and become a voice for voiceless people. With these thoughts, Dr Geeta established the Spherule Foundation. She built the organisation with the vision to work primarily to bring deep-rooted sustainable change in people’s lives, the vision is to create an equal, just, and sustainable society.

Atmanirbhar Bharat or the Self-reliant India campaign is the vision of Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi for a new India. The Atma nirbhar Bharat Conclave & Awards 2022 Award is an effort of Times Applaud to honor and recognize the Atma Nirbhar Bharat campaign that aims to make the country and its citizens self-dependent. The event was held to honor the exceptional individuals or companies who are contributing to the development of the nation and working to make India more prosperous. Hence, Dr Geeta Bora, rightly deserves the award for the social services she has rendered through her foundation.
Dr Geeta is a pragmatic individual who believes in a clean,healthy and just environment that gives equal opportunities to all. In a message to the young professionals, Dr Geeta asks them to be patient listeners and active observers.
She Quotes “Always focus on the root cause of any social issue and try to solve that root cause with this approach we will solve multiple issues together. Today we need Social Innovators, Social Scientists, Social Investors and Social Entrepreneurs, charity alone cannot solve the problems, if that would have been the case we would have at least solved one problem of hunger. So much charity and efforts are put to end hunger but still the problem remains the same. Unless people with new ideas and innovation come forward and consider social projects as critical as a mission Mars project, we cannot solve these problems.
