Teach for the Philippines is a for-purpose, non-stock, non-profit organization that works to provide all Filipino children with an inclusive, relevant, and excellent education. We enlist some of the country’s most promising young leaders to teach for two years in public schools throughout the Philippines. Through their experiences in the classroom, Teach for the Philippines transforms our leaders into lifelong advocates for education equity.
Founded in August 2012 by Lizzie E. Zobel, Margarita L. Delgado, and Clarissa Isabelle Delgado, Teach for the Philippines stands on the shoulders of giants: the Sa Aklat Sisikat Foundation, which focused on functional literacy for over a decade and Teach for All, a global network of social enterprises working towards education reform.
Today, with a fast-growing team of individuals, driven with a common passion for expanding educational access, Teach for the Philippines looks forward to leaving our mark on the country.
