Donate to WorldTeach

30 YEARS OF SERVICE ・ LOCAL STAFF SUPPORT ・ DEFINED COMMUNITY ROLES

The statistics are staggering. 4 million teachers would have been needed to achieve Universal Primary Education between 2012 and 2015 while 2.6 million would have been needed to replace those who retired, changed occupations, or left due to illness. In 2015, 1 in 6 children in low and middle income countries – nearly 100 million – did not complete primary school. WorldTeach strives to narrow these education accessibility gaps, one teacher at a time.

Your donation contributes directly to continued quality global programming and enables WorldTeach volunteers to be on the front lines of international education and globalization. It gives anyone the opportunity to participate in collaborative WorldTeach communities around the world.

Why Donate to WorldTeach?

In 1987,  students from Harvard University went to Kenya with a simple purpose; to see if local schools needed assistance. This idea has led to WorldTeach evolving to more than 7,000 worldwide volunteers who have served in more than 25 middle and low income countries around the globe. WorldTeach partners with local governments’ ministries and departments of education to provide volunteer teachers in their identified communities. WorldTeach offers intensive in-country training, 24/7 local support, and a defined role in the host community. A donation to WorldTeach allows the sustainability of this model. It provides a platform for all citizens to become more invested in their global community. Take a look below at our WorldTeach volunteers and their various in-country projects and initiatives.
Our goal is to build a resource center at our placement school, Ediva PS in Namibia. Ediva does not have a library or space for learners to study or hold IC classes. This new resource center would act as a place for learners to complete homework, study, read, and learn about new technology.
