LUI Che Woo Prize
“Our own values and vision of making the world a better, more positive place are very similar to that of the Prize, and this generous honour from an international award will greatly support the work of Pratham in continuing to promote quality education to the children who are most in need.”
— Dr. Rukmini Banerji, CEO of the Pratham Education Foundation
Pratham was named a winner of the 2018 LUI Che Woo Prize, a cross-sector innovation prize that recognises outstanding contributions benefiting humanity. Pratham was unanimously selected in the Positive Energy category, which this year focused on the elimination of illiteracy.
The LUI Che Woo Prize is a relatively new, international award presented to individuals or organisations that have displayed remarkable achievements towards three objectives: sustainable development of the world; betterment of the welfare of mankind; and promotion of a positive life attitude and enhancement of positive energy. The prize comes with a monetary award of HK $20 million (approximately $2.56 million) and will be officially presented to Pratham at a ceremony in October of 2018.
