Every child on the planet deserves access to an equitable and quality education. Yet 250 million kids around the world still leave school without critical reading, writing & math skills. Underserved and rural areas are the hardest hit.
TeachUNITED is determined to change that.
Who We Are
TeachUNITED is a global non-profit dedicated to reducing poverty and inequality through education. We focus on underserved communities where educational disparities are most acute. We partner with schools in Tanzania, Costa Rica, and the United States.
Education transforms the local communities we serve. It also provides tangible solutions to some of the world’s most persistent challenges, including poverty, climate change, and health and gender inequality.
By investing in education, we empower teachers and students to incubate long-term solutions to these challenges.
The TeachUNITED team has deep-rooted educational experience, allowing us to effectively transform schools across cultures. As a data-driven organization, we rigorously measure the impact and effectiveness of our program.
Most importantly, our work is truly led by the local communities we serve, ensuring that they define success on their own terms.
By the end of 2019, 15,000+ children across three countries will be impacted. Our students and teachers categorically outperform their peers.
- TeachUNITED students report double-digit increases in 21st-Century skills.
- Girls in Tanzania showed a 2x increase in National Exam promotion rates.
- Students show a 115% growth across all subject areas in US programs after just one year.
TeachUNITED’s work is only possible through strong local partnerships. We collaborate with teachers, students, schools, universities, and local government entities to deliver our replicable and sustainable model.
The model has positively impacted kids in vastly different communities on three continents and has the potential to scale and shift the quality of education for any teacher, any school, anywhere.
Our goal is to reach more than 80,000 kids by 2024.
