Teachers Transform Lives

Teaching is one of the most important jobs in the world, but often teachers working where they are most needed have little help, materials, training or support. 

Despite these challenges they are expected to improve learning outcomes and lay the foundation for the prosperity of both their communities and countries. 

Teachers need to be supported and empowered so that they can be successful in the classroom. That’s why we’re shining a light on inspirational teachers whose teaching has been transformed and who are in turn transforming lives; developing the doctors, engineers and teachers of tomorrow.

Teachers shape young lives and strong teachers offer children and communities a brighter future, even when the odds are stacked against them. 

We want to celebrate teachers and advocate for better teacher training, professional development and ongoing support—by showing how all teachers can be supported and empowered to succeed in the classroom. See for yourself how some teachers are learning new teaching techniques to inspire young children and turning their classrooms into springboards for success. Watch them talking about their passion for their work, and how they’ve become better teachers through training, coaching, and better resources; completely changing how they feel.

The campaign tells the stories of Laura, Ibrahim, Madhavi, Cecilia, Simon, Prema, and Prince who’ve all transformed the way they teach and are now transforming lives. These teachers are the ones who will change the world, one young life at a time.

Thanks for supporting teachers.
