The story of India's Global Teacher Award winning primary teacher who also donated Rs 7 crore and a half


An education in Maharashtra has won the Global Teacher Prize for its efforts to promote girls' education and connect them to technology in one of the country's primary schools. The 32-year-old winner, Ranjit Singh Disale, has received a prize of લાખ 10 lakh (about Rs 7 crore 38 lakh). Ranjit Disal has now announced to give half of this amount to his colleagues.

Schools are completely closed during the Corona epidemic. Digital learning is happening in schools but it is not enough. Girls in particular are lagging behind because they have less mobile in their hands.

On the other hand, the education of a small village in the country at such a time has made a great contribution in the education of girls.

This is the case of Paritevadi village in Solapur district of Maharashtra. When Disale arrived at the primary school in 2009, the condition of the school was very bad. The building named after the school was in poor condition. The building named after the school was in poor condition. Apparently they were coming to work keeping the animals and the store room. People had no interest in educating their children and especially their daughters because they believed that it would not change anything.

Ranjit Singh Disale translated the textbooks into the mother tongue one by one

Ranjit Singh Disale took the responsibility to change this situation. Going from house to house preparing children’s parents for education was not the only task. Another problem was that the textbooks were in English. Disale then translated the textbooks into the mother tongue one by one. It also added technology. The technology was to provide QR codes so that students could attend video lectures and listen to poems and stories in their own language. Since then, the rate of child marriage in the village and surrounding areas has been declining rapidly.

This teacher from Solapur did it even before introducing QR code in textbooks in Maharashtra. Disal then did not stop. In the year 2017, they proposed to the Maharashtra government that all the courses should be attached to it. Disale's talk was then carried out at an earlier experimental level and finally the state government announced that they would launch QR code textbooks in the state for all categories. Now the NCERT has also made this announcement.
