Sakal Media MD Abhijit Pawar receives world’s first Global Impact Legacy Honour Award from YPO

Managing director of Sakal Media Group, and founder-chairman of the Delivering Change Foundation Abhijit Pawar from Pune has been bestowed the first Global Impact Legacy Honour Award, instituted by the Young Presidents’ Organisations – World Presidents’ Organisation (YPO-WPO).


The award was presented to Pawar at a special ceremony in Dubai last month. The Global Impact Legacy Honour Award recognises Global Impact-featured members whose commitment to making a difference is leaving a lasting legacy on the organisation and the world. The YPO-WPO said that Pawar’s endeavours are guided by what he calls the Trinity-7 model. With this model, Pawar has aimed at transforming the social, administrative and economic sectors.

“When it was first announced that I was getting this award, I was truly humbled and privileged, as it was the first award they were conferring. I am using this as an opportunity to reach out and tell my story to other members and appeal to them that we can join hands, come together and work together in whichever country you belong to,” he said.

According to YPO-WPO, “Any project that Pawar undertakes will have a large, positive social impact, connect with individuals on an emotional level and be easily implemented with a short-term impact. This is a great way of doing business, where you start by not thinking about yourself, but rather by solving a larger global issue, or a society’s or community’s problems first, and in the process, your problems are also solved.”

Pawar was also featured with a Global Impact honour in 2014 for his work through the Tanishka Foundation, a platform that addresses issues affecting women and ensures them of a dignified life with emotional, physical and financial security.

He has also launched the Delivering Change Foundation, a globally focused organisation that partners with governments, non-governmental organisations, corporations and communities to bring about a positive socioeconomic change.

The YPO is a global forum for young entrepreneurs leading industries in various sectors. The forum has more than 24,000 young entrepreneurs and other members leading industries from 130 nations across the world. Besides exchanging ideas, YPO members also help each other to gain knowledge.
 Pawar through his company Sakal has interest in Goa through his media group Marathi newspaper Gomantak and English daily Gomantak Times.
