Teach, Enrich, Empower
Education goes beyond the four walls of the classroom. The TEFL Academy is proud to announce we have partnered with United World Schools and built a primary school in Kanpur, Nepal! Together, we are bringing education to children in some of the most remote communities, empowering students and ultimately teaching the unreached. We are providing these pupils with the tools they need to flourish and choose their own pathway in life and ultimately break out of the poverty cycle.
Our goals are aligned with those of UWS. We have a passion for education and seek to empower children through this. Since 2008, UWS has built 250 schools and trained 1,000 local and government teachers and reached 43,000 children in Nepal, Myanmar and Cambodia with life-changing education. Not only has The TEFL Academy funded the building of the school, but we continue to fund the resources and materials needed for schooling. Over 120 children are currently receiving an education absolutely free of charge.

Who are United World Schools?
United World Schools (UWS) works in some of the world’s poorest regions to provide free primary education to children. They collaborate with communities that are determined to break out of the poverty cycle and in return, receive a commitment that they will send their children to school, including their girls (promoting gender equality). United World Schools help transforms communities, giving them a new sense of hope.
We only work with partners that share the same values and vision as we do, so when the opportunity came up to partner with UWS on such a monumental project, we knew we’d be a perfect match. We believe that education transforms lives and every child should have access to education. United World Schools strive to improve, through education, life opportunities for some of the world’s poorest children living in remote and marginalised communities – a truly inspiring mission. We are forming a synergistic partnership whereby together we can teach, enrich, and empower, for generations to come.
Corporate Social Responsibility
The TEFL Academy is committed to enforcing positive change through education. We have funded and continue to support the build and operation of of a primary school in Nepal, so that local children will have access to education, something that would not have been previously possible. By breaking the cycle of illiteracy, these children will be able to build a better life and lift their families out of poverty.
How you can help
There are currently over 258 million children without access to primary education but together, we can change that.

Our work is creating genuine system reform, providing a quality and inclusive education to the children at Kanpur School. It is inspiring to work with the visionary team at The TEFL Academy, where together we believe that educating the future, changes the future.”
