Teach For India Fellowship 2012 deadline


Teach For India's journey so far has been one of giant leaps, renewed hope and a testament to the power of the collective. We began placing Fellows in under-resourced classrooms in 2009 with a batch of 80 Fellows teaching in 33 schools across Mumbai and Pune. At present, we have 385 Fellows across the 2 years of the Fellowship teaching 12,000 students in 130 schools across 3 major cities in India.

Teach For India plans to grow exponentially in the next 5 years. By 2016, we will to have 2000 Fellows teaching across 10 Indian cities and reaching out to around 65000 students. The problem of educational inequity is not limited to particular cities in India, it is one faced by the entire country and indeed the world. The movement to expose leaders to educational inequity therefore needs to be a national movement with people from different sectors coming together to ensure that one day all children will attain an excellent education. For it to be a systemic change, we require people from different walks of life to talk about this problem and expose others to it so that together we can tackle this epidemic of poor education plaguing our country. India is on the cusp of becoming a global superpower and the children of today will lead our nation to the helm of the world. Hence, there is no better time to help a classroom full of children get an education that they deserve than right now!

The final deadline to apply for the 2012 Fellowship will close on January 22nd, 2012.
