Bolo English Awards 2024: Celebrating Educational Excellence

The Centre for Civil Society has been running project Bolo English to promote the knowledge of the English language and speaking ability among students enrolled in low-cost private schools in India as this unfolds economic opportunities and accelerates social mobility. In the first 3 years (2020-2023) of the project that was affected by the Covid19, we promoted self-learning among students through mobile applications. This year (2023-24), we have trained more than 5,000 teachers from low-cost private schools to build the English language capacity, likely to improve the English-speaking ability of approximately 2.5 Lakh students.

The "Bolo English Awards 2024" is a momentous event hosted by the Centre for Civil Society (CCS) to honour the outstanding achievements of teachers and schools in improving the quality of education in Budget Private Schools (BPS) through the Bolo English teacher training project. Taking place in New Delhi on March 18, 2024, this event is set to bring together a diverse group of teachers, school leaders, influencers, and thought leaders from across the country.


At A Glance

Launched in July 2020, Project Bolo English is a unique initiative of the Centre for Civil Society. Through this project, we aim to equip children from low-income families with much aspired Spoken English skills. In the last three years, leveraging the role of Teachers, Schools and Parents as influencers, we provided children free, year-long access to renowned Mobile Applications with customised Spoken English content. This year, the Bolo English program is pivoting towards strengthening teachers' abilities, ensuring superior learning results for students.

This year is about fortifying our educators! Our extensive training encompasses essential techniques for effective English language instruction. We aim to equip teachers with tools that can amplify their students' English-speaking prowess.


Teacher Training Program Highlights:

  • 1-2 Hrs of weekly online classes
  • Consistent reading and speaking tasks for improved proficiency
  • Fortnightly digital masterclasses/workshops of 1-2Hrs
  • Certificates of completion for all attendees


Project Bolo English is supported by three renowned philanthropic entities, The Michael and Susan Dell Foundation (MSDF), Procter and Gamble Shiksha Initiative, and The Rising Tide Foundation (Switzerland).
