The Institute’s First Gandhi Award

presented by Walter Cronkite: 2003

In 2003, Walter Cronkite presented the Institute’s first Gandhi Award to Dr. Muhammad Yunus, founder of the Grameen Bank.

Arun Gandhi wrote to Yunus, “Much like Gandhi’s Salt March, which freed India’s poor, your microcredit movement is freeing the world’s poor so we can all work together to build a more peaceful world.”

Held in New York City at the Institute’s Celebration of Heroes Awards, we pledged to carry on the legacy of Mahatma Gandhi, Eleanor Roosevelt, Cesar Chavez and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to improve the conditions of our neighborhoods, our countries and the world through individual action and working with others. Together, we have forged new directions for the global economy, bridge the gap between the haves and have nots and strive to build a more peaceful world. In 2006, Dr. Yunus received the Nobel Peace Prize. For over a decade Walter Cronkite served as the Institute’s honorary chair. The Institute’s Cronkite Awards were held from 2009-2014 on Martha’s Vineyard.
