Our mission is to build a movement of diverse and capable
leaders committed to eliminating educational inequity in Pakistan
what we do
Teach For Pakistan leverages promising young talent to create a multiplier effect on the education system.
We recruit and train top graduates and young professionals from all fields for a two-year Fellowship to teach in low-income schools that lack quality teachers. After the Fellowship, our Alumni use their experiences to tackle Pakistan’s most pressing problems in education, fostering action to change policy and curriculum, mobilizing resources, turning around schools, and spurring social innovation. Collectively, this movement aims to transform systems of educational inequity and promote excellence in education.
50÷100. Half of all students in Pakistan's public schools cannot solve this.
This is the state of classrooms our Fellows step into, to radically transform students' academic, non-cognitive and social-emotional skills and outcomes. This complex work enables a continuous and intensive learning process for our Fellows.
Our Alumni pursue radical transformation for all students, by leading change in education and social impact organizations; acting as pressure points in a wider system perpetuating education inequity. These pressure points fuel our movement, which we believe can trigger systemic change and therefore change the state of education in Pakistan.
Teach For Pakistan was piloted in Karachi & Lahore from 2011-2016 and recruited & supported over 100 excellent teachers and education leaders.
Teach For Pakistan is now an independent organization headquartered in Islamabad with 87 Fellows teaching across 38 rural schools in Islamabad since August 2018.
Fellow-supported schools report increased attendance, retention and school staff capacity. Moreover, student learning in a Fellow's classroom grows, on average, by 1 academic year in in just five months.
The two-year Fellowship is the cornerstone of our movement. Teach For Pakistan recruits motivated and talented individuals to teach in under-resourced schools, transforming student outcomes and gaining critical skills and knowledge about the education system.
After the Fellowship, our Alumni take forward the movement for educational quality, becoming lifelong champions for every child’s right to an excellent education. Join a movement of future leaders working to reform the education system.
