ABOUT TEACH FOR INDIA
Teach For India exists because of a deep belief that every child can and must attain an excellent education. Teach For India believes that it will take a movement of leaders across sectors with the idealism, belief, skills and commitment to end educational inequity and put their students on a different life path.
In the short run, Teach For India recruits India's most promising college graduates and high performing young professionals to serve as full-time teachers in low-income schools for two years. Fellows work tirelessly to bridge the immense gaps their children face, putting their students on a fundamentally different life path. Through the Teaching as Leadership framework, Teach For India staff provide training and support to Fellows so that they can employ innovative teaching strategies to maximize their effectiveness in the classroom.The vision of Teach For India is that one day all children will attain an excellent education. Teach For India's mission is to build the movement of leaders who will end educational inequity. Teach For India believes that education is the single most fundamental social issue especially in a country where 32 percent of the population is under fourteen years of age. At an individual level, education is a priceless asset which dictates ones course in life. A lack of education creates ignorance, which in turn fosters issues from corruption to violence to populist government policies. If we educate India in the right way, the future holds great promise.
