The education crisis in India is complex. Issues ranging from attendance to a lack of qualified teachers mean that millions of children are missing out on gaining the knowledge and skills they need to thrive.
Teach For India is passionate about solving this crisis with a vision that one day all children will attain an excellent education. It believes leadership is the way forward and is using Salesforce to help build a community of leaders that can inspire and deliver tangible change.
Teach For India’s Fellowship Program recruits some of the brightest minds from across India to serve as full-time teachers to children in low-income communities.
Karthik Rapaka, a former Deloitte employee and alumnus of Teach For India, said that the two-year program helped their teaching Fellows to understand all the issues impacting children’s ability to learn.
“The Fellows become change agents for the community and not just for those two years. What we see is that 60% of alumni go into research, technology or education where they continue to progress our mission,” said Rapaka.
