Although Bangladesh has made great strides in improving access to schooling for children across the country, going to school has not translated in actual learning for the vast majority of children who live in economic and social disadvantage. For example, according to a 2018 report from the World Bank:
We envision a future in which all children in Bangladesh have a fair shot at a life that is determined not by their parents’ socioeconomic status, but by their ability to dream and learn. To make this vision a reality, we need to not only change the reality in classrooms for today’s learners, but also to transform leadership capacity across the education system.
Our flagship program – the Teach For Bangladesh Fellowship – enlists young Bangladeshi graduates to work first as full-time teachers in under-served schools for two years, and then continue to drive innovation and change more broadly through their long-term leadership in education and beyond.

Since 2014, over 9,000 people have applied to become teachers through our Fellowship program, and over 275 have been admitted after a rigorous selection process.
The typical schooling experience in Bangladesh can be quite traumatic with reports of more than 90% of children experiencing some form of corporal punishment. In stark contrast, 86% of children in TFB classrooms reported: “My teacher fostered an encouraging and supportive relationship with me.” (Teach For All Tripod Survey, 2017)
Within just two years of intervention from Teach For Bangladesh, the percent of students scoring an A+ on standardized national tests (the highest possible score) went from 5% to 38%.
Through this campaign, our goal is to raise $100,000 by 31 December, 2019.
