‘No child should be left behind’

Our unique flagship programme - the Community Volunteer Teacher Programme - trains talented, but unemployed, young people to be excellent volunteer teachers, working in the communities where they were born and live.

Based on over 20 years’ evidence of success, our Community Volunteer Teachers ensure that promising, but disadvantaged, primary school students receive the quality education they deserve.

T2T International tackles the following global challenges in one programme:

  • High youth unemployment

  • Low student attainment

  • Rural to urban migration

  • Early and forced marriage

T2T International works in some of the world’s most underperforming schools and most highly deprived communities.

Our work begins in Northern Ghana, where unemployment stands at over 50% and literacy among primary school students is as low as 5%.
