An attached communique reads, “as you may know, since 2015, we have been running the Global Teacher Prize, a Us $1 million award presented annually to an exceptional teacher who has made an outstanding contribution to their profession. The prize serves to underline the importance of educators and the fact that, throught the world, their efforts deserve to be recognized and celebrated. It seeks to acknowledge the impacts of the very best teachers- not only on their students but on the communities around them”.

The Varkey Foundation established the prize in 2014, to recognise and celebrate the impact that teachers have around the world – not only on their students, but on the communities around them.
The Varkey Foundation believes that vibrant education awakens and supports the full potential of young people. Thanks to inspirational teachers, students develop the skills and knowledge that they need to lead successful lives and positively impact the world.
