Baba Amte’s son and daughter-in-law, Prakash Amte and Mandakini Amte have won the Ramon Magsaysay Award for the year 2008 for their work in the field of social development.

Vivek Deshpande writes this article in The Indian Express:

The honour came in recognition of the work the doctor couple has been doing for the tribals at Bhamragarh in the thickly-wooded, Naxal-infested corner of Gadchiroli district of Maharashtra, where they have established a hospital and school, and, according to the Ramon Magsaysay Award Foundation in Manila, Philippines, have enhanced the “capacity of the Madia Gonds to adapt positively in today’s India, through healing and teaching and other compassionate interventions.”
