Sharon Ply is a highly socially conscious company that believes in equal partnership of corporates and citizens in building a responsible and vibrant society. The #iamstrongest initiative was conceptualised and launched, by Sharon Ply, to bring to public notice, true stories of strength, grit and determination, courage and valour, empathy and selflessness that exemplify the human potential for goodness and greatness.

The initiative includes an annual award ceremony that selects and honours individuals with exemplary strength of character. The 1st Edition #iamstrongest awards were given to Ms. Malathi (a differently abled Wheelchair Basketball Player) and Ms. Logammal (a social change maker who inspires children to become socially responsible through her Children’s Parliament).

The 1st Edition of the #iamstrongest awards were given on Feb 16th, 2019, at WELCOME HOTEL, Cathedral Road, Chennai. The event had a select group of invitees to show appreciation to the two award winners. There was also short videos detailing the life story of the awardees – Ms Malathi and Ms Logammal. The winners were each given a commemorative plaque and a cheque of Rs. 51,000 by Shri. Vishnu Khemani, Managing Director, Sharon Ply.
