Robin Chaurasiya Nominated For ‘Global Teacher Prize’


Robin Chaurasiya, an Indian teacher who runs a non-profit school in Mumbai for girls from the city’s red light areas has been named in the top 10 short-list for a global prize for teachers. Robin Chaurasiya, founder of Kranti, will compete with teachers from the UK, US, Nairobi, Palestine, Japan, Finland, Australia and Pakistan to win the $1-million Global Teacher Prize 2016.
“There was a teacher behind every great artist, every great philosopher, every great scientist. However difficult life can be, teachers have always been there, behind the scenes, showing us the way forward,” said renowned scientist Prof. Stephen Hawking as he announced the top 10 in London. The prize was created last year as a kind of Oscars for the teaching profession by the U.K.-based Varkey Foundation.

The Global Teacher Prize was set up to recognize one exceptional teacher who has made an outstanding contribution to the profession as well as to shine a spotlight on the important role teachers play in society. The top ten have been narrowed down from 8,000 nominations and applications from 148 countries from around the world. 
The people of Kamathipura, Mumbai’s notorious red-light district, are on the outer margins of society. However, a small schoolroom in the centre of the district is a remarkable force for change. There, Robin Chaurasiya is giving the girls an education where none had existed before. She teaches them to think and speak for themselves. And they are finding a voice, spreading the word to others in the community and to over 100,000 children and parents. The prize will be announced at a ceremony in Dubai on March 13.

So lets discuss some questions related to this post which can be asked in the upcoming exams :
1. Who has been nominated for Global Teacher Prize 2016 ?
2. Robin Chaurasiya is the founder of which organisation ?
