Something about the Global GoalKeeper Award

Four Years Back, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation initiated the Goalkeeper awards, and present the award in five categories. The idea is to acknowledge the global leaders or individuals who make efforts and contribute to the idea of Sustainable Development. The five categories for which they honour these individuals are Progress, Campaign, Goalkeepers Voice, Global Goalkeeper, and Change maker. Indian PM Modi will receive the honour for the category of Global Goal Keeper because he has ensured the equality of villages and cities, and has made sure that rural areas also get the benefit from his campaign.
