Welcome to TAI Beacons awards page. The TAI Beacons awards are more than just an award: These honours provide reinforcement for our unique mentoring initiative as awardees are carefully selected (from a long list of nominees) to reflect the values and tenets of our mentoring. Award recipients are, therefore, a vital component of our mentoring initiative and present our mentees with good examples to emulate.
By recognising the good works of others, we hope to inspire them to do more and inspire others (especially those we mentor) to walk in the steps of these beacons.
TAI Beacons awards are broadly into two categories – individual and corporate awards. Individual awards are given to individuals who are making a difference whilst the corporate awards are for corporate groups and organizations making a difference in the communities where they do business. By nominating your beacon for the TAI beacons award, you are helping to promote the spirit of goodwill and hard work that forms the basis for these awards. You will also be acknowledging the difference these beacons have made to your life and/or local community.
