“Pratham has expanded the scope of
education in resource constrained areas… It has done so through two significant
innovations: the creation of simple, accurate and reliable tools for
communities to assess learning; and a process that uses scientific evidence to
develop new cost-effective programs that drastically improve learning
— Jury citation
Pratham received the 2014 Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA) Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Award in the Development Cooperation category for two decades of successfully catering to the learning needs of millions of disadvantaged children.
