Teach For Thailand (TFT) is a non-profit organization with the goal of ending educational inequity in Thailand. It recruits and develops talented individuals to teach mathematics, science, and English to middle school students in economically challenged schools. The organization works in partnership with communities for a period of two years.
In 2021, Teach For Thailand approached the IVL Foundation for sponsorship of their Fellowship Program. The program allows the TFT teaching fellows to gain important skills, such as teaching skills, leadership, problem solving and the can-do attitude that will inspire them to become key drivers in transforming Thai education for the better. In turn, the students in
the participating schools receive an enhanced education that will allow them to shape a better future for themselves and those around them.
By the end of 2021, TFT has 98 active teaching fellows who were placed in 45 schools in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Chonburi, Kalasin, Kanchanaburi, Khon Kaen, Lampang, Lopburi, Nakhon Pathom, Nakhon Sawan, Nan, Prachinburi, and Rayong.
The IVL Foundation will continue to support the project in 2022.
