By working together, we can tackle the symptoms that have been plaguing our education system and create a brighter future for generations to come. We invite you to become a part of our initiative and contribute to the positive changes that we are striving to achieve.

We are committed to collecting and analysing data, refining our methods, and ensuring that our mission to bridge education inequalities is sustainable. Our growth plan in Sri Lanka involves selecting areas based on key criteria such as high-need schools affected by socio-economic inequity, teacher shortages, and high dropout rates, as well as access to high-quality fellow candidates, support from local educational offices, logistical feasibility, and partnerships with collaborators.

Teach First Sri Lanka has a clear growth plan in place, aiming to bring its transformative program to more and more schools across Sri Lanka in the coming years.

This growth will enable Teach First Sri Lanka to bridge the gaps in education inequality and transform the lives of thousands of disadvantaged children across the country
