Teach For Thailand is a non-profit organization founded in 2012 as the 29th member of Teach for All, a global network for expanding education opportunities for children around the world. The vision is that one day all Thai children, regardless of their socioeconomic status, will receive quality education that enables them to shape their own destiny.
We recruit and develop talented individuals to teach in academically and economically challenged schools and work in partnership with local communities for a period of two years. Students are thereby provided with an enhanced education that will allow them to shape a better future for themselves and those around them. In turn, through their 2 years’ experience, participants understand the root causes in Thai education and gain the foundation for a lifetime of leadership. Post the 2-year program, they would then go on to become key figures in both public and private sectors (e.g., government/policy, school leadership and social innovation/NGO), which together would collectively transform the Thai education system for the better.
Over the past nine years, Teach For Thailand has reached more than 64,000 students through 440 fellows, empowered 99 schools and communities across 16 provinces in Thailand. In 2022 alone, 250 alumni are working across sectors to collectively influence change to the education system and indirectly impact more than 100,000 students in Thailand.
