The Saint Teresa of Calcutta Awards (STCA), formerly known as the Blessed Teresa of Calcutta Awards, opens call for nominations for its 30th year.
Following the selfless examples set by Saint Teresa, the award is open for every individual who has dedicated themselves to selfless humanitarian service for the less fortunate Filipinos. Anyone can be nominated regardless of age, gender, race, and religion.
Inspired by the life and works of Saint Teresa, the A.Y. Foundation (AYF), Inc. and Junior Chamber International (JCI) Manila established the SCTA in 1983 as a Nobel Peace Prize awardee who showed compassion for the poor and has inspired many to follow the path of the blessed saint.
SCTA aims to inspire the public to again look at the importance of helping others by recognizing selfless individuals who has taken the path of Saint Theresa in dedicating their lives to serve the “poorest of the poor.”
The selected individual will receive 1 million pesos, and half of which will be donated to the winners chosen charitable institution.
As we celebrate the project’s 30th year, we’d like to inspire more people, especially the youth, to be more involved in their community through honoring the selfless individuals who have dedicated most of their lives by serving the poorest of the poor.
Jerrold Ong, 2017 Chairman of the Saint Teresa of Calcutta Award
