Selecting 2021’s winners was no easy task, but the expert panel decided these five organisations showed the originality, innovation and ambition that reflect the vision of the awards.
The winners’ £50,000 grants will go towards scale-up costs, research and resources needed to move pilot projects forwards. Masterclasses and mentoring provide the skills and guidance they’ll need to make connections, build infrastructure and grow their ideas as they push towards their goals.
Theirworld awarded the remaining six finalists Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) Fellowships. MEL Fellowships provide masterclasses and mentoring aimed at helping organisations gather and interpret the data they’ll need to provide evidence of the viability of their ideas.
We’re delighted to be working with these talented organisations as they forge paths towards new, innovative ways of delivering education to the overlooked children who need it.
Innovation is key to solving the global education crisis. If all five award-winners reach their scale goals, Theirworld will have helped them reach six million learners by the end of 2024. It’s the kind of ambitious goal we need if we want to unlock big change and end the global learning crisis.
