The 37-year-old model-actress, who has two adopted daughters, took to Twitter to share her delight after receiving the honour.
"Beautiful people... 'The Mother Teresa International Award' I received last night. Precious," Sen posted along with a photo.
"What an overwhelming feeling to receive an award named after 'Mother' and with past recipients like his holiness Dalai Lama and Malala Yousafzai," she tweeted.
