Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 1998
This description of Yogendra Singh's work was prepared when Yogendra Singh was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1998.
Yogendra is demonstrating that even among communities deprived of basic rights and resources children can and should receive a high quality primary education, characterized by autonomous teachers and child-centered classes. Having refined an alternative educational program for children in slums, he is grafting it onto the formal state school system and forming a partnership with the government to improve teaching and learning on a large scale.
