Awarded the 2021 Yidan Prize for Education Development

Every Child in School and Learning Well!

More than 50% of India's fifth graders cannot read a second-grade text. You can change that.

Vocational Training

India accounts for 28% of the world's working age population. However, only 2% of its current workers have received any formal training.

A Second Chance

Almost 80% of India's girls drop out of school before reaching grade 8. We afford dropouts a safe, supportive learning environment so they can complete their secondary school education.

Impact

Pratham has reached 75 million children in 26 years working in partnership with local communities and state governments.

Pratham USA

Pratham USA consistently earns a four-star rating from Charity Navigator. Over 88% of the funds raised by Pratham USA go directly to support programs in India.

2021 Yidan Prize

We are thrilled that Pratham CEO Dr. Rukmini Banerji was 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 the lives of more children. This will contribute significantly towards our goal of seeing “every child in school and learning well.

Our Mission

Of the 250 million children worldwide who cannot read or write, two-fifths reside in India, where for a quarter-century Pratham has been working to alleviate this crisis.

We develop low-cost solutions to improve the quality of learning and work with governments to take them to scale.

Our community-driven approach has engaged hundreds of thousands of volunteers and has affected the lives of 75 million Indian children.
