Challenge

There are 9 million teachers in India, but very few are given the support and training they need to be effective in the classroom. Only 22% of teachers receive any on-the-job training - a number that is steadily declining. Teachers are unable to support their students effectively due to poor student-teacher ratios, improper infrastructure, long working hours and little to no support. Yet the burden of improving learning outcomes falls entirely on the teacher.

Solution

Imagine a platform that reduces the everyday friction that teachers face. A trusted platform where teachers can access quality resources, get the support they need and connect with other teachers. Teach A Class connects passionate teachers to effective solutions, funds, resources, and innovations. We're India's first crowdfunding platform that connects teachers to the resources they need and supports them on their journey to deliver high-quality education in the classroom.

Long-Term Impact

We want to empower teachers to lead their classrooms into the 21st century. Our long term goal is to see the platform run by teachers - a place where they can connect with each other, exchange ideas and resources. We aim to sustain their passion for teaching and improve the delivery of education across classrooms in India.
