Summary

Since March 2020, India has witnessed the world's worst coronavirus crisis. The families of Teach For India's 28,000 students have grappled with disrupted learning due to prolonged school closures, among other challenges. Teach For India U.S. empowers Teach For India with intellectual, human, and financial resources to eliminate educational inequity in India, and we actively support TFI Fellows as they up-skill and serve marginalised students as frontline workers in this pandemic.

Challenge

The education crisis in India runs wide and deep. 116 million of the world's poorest children live in India. 55% of ten-year-olds cannot read basic texts. 75% will not go on to college. Most of those who do are not fully equipped for life. The pandemic has exacerbated this crisis. We need to act now.

Solution

With staggering learning losses due to school closures during the pandemic, the prevalent India education crisis has been exacerbated. Teach For India are infusing a movement of leaders who are equipped to address the educational inequity at the grassroots level, support their Students to achieve academic growth and build 21st century skills essential to succeed in a career of their choosing. They are also trained in blended learning methodologies, and care deeply about their students' welfare.

Long-Term Impact

Today, Teach For India's 4000+ leaders are impacting more than 1 in 10 children in India - that is 33 million children in the country. As Teach For India enters its second decade of audacious, and critical, growth, we are empowering them to build 50,000 leaders who will work collectively to impact 1 in 10 children in their regions of operation. This powerful movement will work from inside and outside the educational system to effect fundamental, sustainable changes.
