"Mr. Chen wants to promote the most innovative and forward-looking approach to educating around the world through the Yidan Prize."
"The international focus of the Yidan Prize remains unusual for Chinese philanthropists, most of whom are focused on a broadening array of domestic causes."
"Charles Chen Yidan wants to use the Yidan Prize to scale up innovative education research projects and replicate them across the world."
"Chinese philanthropist and Internet pioneer Charles Chen Yidan, believes so strongly in this that he has personally set up the largest education prize of its kind."
"Yidan Prize Foundation seeks to reward people and programmes making advances in education that are 'substantial, scalable, easy for others to follow, forward-looking, and future-oriented.' "
"He hopes that hundreds of projects across the globe can benefit from funding from the Yidan Prize and the next generation of thinkers his award backs."
"Charles Yidan, the core founder of Tencent, one of the world's most successful tech firms, based in China, decided to use part of his wealth to award two annual prizes for education, comparable in their way to the Nobel Prizes in other arenas."
