THE INITIATIVE
Teach India is a Corporate Social Responsibility initiative of The Times of India. With the British Council as its knowledge partner, the initiative is implemented on ground through the partner NGOs. Currently operational in Delhi/NCR and Mumbai, the initiative focuses on promoting volunteerism and imparting spoken English skills to underprivileged youth to enhance their employability.
As a Teach India Volunteer, the driving force of the initiative, you pledge to teach for 2 hours a day, 3 alternate days a week for 100 days. You also commit to 8 days of compulsory training under trainers certified by British Council and TOI.
NGOs in Action
The initiative is implemented on the ground by dedicated partner NGOs, working mostly in underdeveloped urban sections. An important pillar of Teach India in reaching out to the target beneficiaries, the partner NGOs are responsible for organising the spoken English classes, getting the learners in the classrooms, and managing the day-to-day affairs at the teaching centre.
