How ‘Teach For India’ fellows are changing the panorama of rural education with their own enterprises

There has never been a more important time to educate children than today. Educating children is an essential stepping stone to the country’s envisioned, ideal future. However, there have been perennial problems in our education system in the form of lack of government expenditure in education and the distorted government schools system. To fill up the gap, a number of non-government and non-profit organisations have been in the pursuit of balancing the education system in India. Teach for India is one such premier non-profit which has been instrumental in building a movement of leaders who are eliminating educational inequity across the country. Their fellowship program produces quality leaders who are solving the looming problem of illiteracy. Here are a few initiatives by TFI fellows practising innovative and tangible methods to solve the education crisis in rural areas.
