Challenge

India is facing crisis in its educational sector. Inequity in education is a huge concern - while wealthy Indian children have access to excellent education, their low-income peers continue to lag far behind. Of the 320 million children in India, 4% never go to school, 42% drop out of school before 5th grade and 90% do not get an opportunity to go to college. Because of the size and complexity of the Indian education system, grassroots interventions alone are insufficient to address the problem.

Solution

Teach For India's mission is to build a movement of leaders who will end educational inequity. Teach For India recruits India's most outstanding college graduates and young professionals and places them as full time teachers in under-resourced schools for two years. In the short run, Teach For India will provide a source of dedicated teachers working tirelessly to expand the educational opportunities available to India's least privileged children.

Long-Term Impact

In the long run, the program aims to create a powerful network of alumni who, influenced by their experiences in the classroom, will work towards effecting multi-sector solutions to India's educational problems. The experience gained as a Fellow in a low incomes school, or as staff supporting the Fellowship, forms the bedrock of Alumni action. Currently, Teach For India Alumni are working in a variety of for and not-for-profit sectors.
