About the Organization

At Teach For India, we believe leadership for education is the solution. We are building a movement of leaders who will eliminate educational inequity in India.

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

About the Fellowship

he Teach For India Fellowship is an opportunity for India's brightest and most promising individuals, from the nation’s best universities and workplaces, to serve as full-time teachers to children from underserved communities in some of the nation’s most under-resourced schools. Through this experience of teaching in classrooms and working with key education stakeholders like students, principals and parents, our Fellows get exposed to the grassroot realities of India’s education system and begin to cultivate the knowledge, skills, and mindsets necessary to attain positions of leadership in education and identify their role in building a wider movement for educational equity in the country.

Our Fellows transform the life paths of children in their classroom, and in turn, transform themselves towards leadership in educational equity.

Our Fellows are placed as full-time teachers, for 2 years, in government or low-income private schools. They teach English, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies, in English, across Grades 1 to 10. Teach For India Fellows teach on-ground in Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune.

Given the current reality, we are continuing the blended model of asynchronous and synchronous learning, but as state COVID advisories permit, we have begun returning to classrooms full time.
