We are proud to announce that Pratham CEO Dr. Rukmini Banerji has been awarded the 2021 Yidan Prize for Education Development - the world’s highest education accolade - for her work in improving learning outcomes.
The Yidan Prize is an inclusive education award that recognizes individuals or teams who have contributed significantly to the theory and practice of education. Rukmini will join nine laureates who have been awarded the Yidan Prize since its inception in 2016.
With the support of the Yidan Prize, Rukmini plans to strengthen and expand Pratham’s work with young children so that strong foundations can be built early in a child’s life. This will contribute significantly towards our goal of seeing “every child in school and learning well.”

ABOUT US

Pratham is an innovative learning organization created to improve the quality of education in India. Established in 1995 to provide education to children in the slums of Mumbai, Pratham has grown in both scope and scale, with programs today reaching children and youth across the country.

As one of the largest non-governmental organizations in the country, Pratham focuses on high-quality, low-cost and replicable interventions to address gaps in the education system. Working  directly with children and youth as well as through large-scale collaborations with government systems, Pratham programs reach millions of lives every year. Pratham's Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL) approach has demonstrated proven impact on children's learning outcomes and is now being adapted to contexts outside India.
