Teach For Taiwan COVID-19 Response

To whom it may concerned,

Heartily thankful for your generosity, Teach For Taiwan (TFT) is very glad to present the progress we’ve achieved in our project “Teach For Taiwan COVID-19 Response.”

In Taiwan, The education crisis in Taiwan is a gap in opportunity and achievement between students from high and low socioeconomic backgrounds. According to OECD, this gap is one of the widest in the world. Founded in 2013, Teach For Taiwan (TFT) has dedicated itself to bridging the gap of educational inequality in Taiwan. We recruit high-potential, mission-driven individuals to commit to a full-time teaching fellowship in educationally disadvantaged primary schools for two years. Teaching fellowsare equipped with professional training and a comprehensive support system to develop. their teaching and leadership skills. After the 2-year fellowship, TFT supports alumni tocontinue to drive collective long-term change for educational equity. TFT sent more than 200 TFT fellows to 60 schools to support more than 5000 kids.  TFT envisions that “one day, all children in Taiwan, regardless of their background, can attain excellent education and the opportunities of self-development.” 

Due to the Covid-19, schools have been suggested to apply distance learning. Nevertheless, children in our partner schools cannot afford the proper devices for on-line e-learning, which is resulted from the meager incomes of their families. Thus, TFT launches this program and all the donations would be applied to purchase more than 50 tablets and distribute to our “partner schools.” Because of your charity, when online e-learning is obligatory in the future, the learning process of the children we've long supported would not be disrupted. 

We value all the cents and care you’ve spent on TFT. Every effort matters, making us closer to our vision. Thank you again for your time and devotion.

Sincerely,

Teach For Taiwan (TFT)
