Dear All,

India is facing crisis in the education sector. Inequity in education is a huge concern - while wealthy Indian children have access to an excellent education, their low-income peers continue to lag far behind.  Teach For India strongly believes that in order to achieve educational parity, India needs a movement of leaders in a variety of sectors who are committed to, and will work towards, ensuring that every child in India receives an excellent education.

In the short run, TFI will provide a source of dedicated teachers working tirelessly to expand the educational opportunities available to India's least privileged children.

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. Teach For India aims to create a critical mass of empathetic leaders - politicians, corporate executives, media leaders, entrepreneurs - who will work towards educational equity within their sphere of influence. Together these pieces of the puzzle will come together to create real change.

In our first year (2009-10), Teach For India reached 2,800 children; we reached 6,500 in year two (2010-11). With your support, we’ll grow to see the impact across 60,000 children in the next five years. We are committed to working relentlessly with the highest sense of possibility to achieve this daunting mission.

We urge you to contribute as much as you can - for the scale and complexity of what we're trying to achieve is so monumental.
