Teach For Nepal (TFN) was established in 2013 as a movement by outstanding university graduates and young professionals committed to end education inequity in Nepal. They believe education can transform lives and that youth are the true drivers of change. It starts with two years of fellowship teaching in public schools in Dhanusha, Lalitpur and Sindhupalchowk.
TFN fellowship is a two year full time paid employment opportunity in which the fellows teach in public schools to bring academic achievement and transformative impact in their students. Beyond the two years, their commitment is recognised by international universities when they apply, there are opportunities for work and for scholarships.
