Teach, Enrich, Empower

Our Impact

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 Goal

Our goals are aligned with those of UWS. We have a passion for education and seek to empower children through this. We have built and continue to maintain a school in the remote community of Kanpur, Nepal. 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 150 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.

 

United World Schools

Why UWS?

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.

A message from UWS CEO, Tim Howarth...

“We are really excited to be launching this innovative partnership with The TEFL Academy, where together we will support hundreds of children to access an education. Partnering with like-minded people and organisations within the education sector creates a true force for change, and together we are much more than the sum of our parts. By working together we will empower teachers and students in Nepal to reach their full potential and create pathways for their futures. Working with the team at The TEFL Academy will bring about new opportunities for United World Schools and the thousands of children and teachers we support. Together we will transform lives.”
