Summary

Teach For Bulgaria (TFB) teachers work in some of Bulgaria's most high-need schools and communities, where the majority of children often lack access to quality education due to socio-economic factors, such as their ethnicity, family structure, the level of education attained by their parents, and family's financial situation. By supporting these teachers, financially and through trainings, TFB enables students' success in the classroom and beyond. Your contribution makes this possible!

Challenge

In Bulgaria, children from minorities and low-income families underperform in school. Bulgaria has the largest gap between the students with highest and lowest results (PISA), and the highest school dropout rate in Europe - 21.5% (Eurostat). Kids living in rural areas can fall behind their city peers by up to 3 years, while 40% of all 15 year olds in the country are functionally illiterate. All of this limits students' success in the classroom and beyond.

Solution

TFB teachers are motivated by the belief in the success of every child. They are trained and certified in a combination of traditional pedagogy and contemporary teaching approaches, in order to provide opportunities for learning to every student in the classroom. TFB supports the teachers through ongoing trainings, one-on-one coaching and evaluation, professional development opportunities, and monthly financial stipends, allowing teachers to focus entirely on teaching.

Long-Term Impact

TFB believes that every child can succeed, if she/he is supported, motivated, and allowed access to diverse learning opportunities. By recruiting, training and supporting motivated professionals who become teachers in high-need schools, TFB injects new talent in the education sector, both directly in the form of human capital and through the sharing of developed best practices in teacher training and teaching approaches in the classroom.
