What’s the difference between going to school and getting an education?
For students like Christina, the student featured in our Teachers First video, simply arriving at school every day is a feat. Yet showing up doesn’t do enough to pave the way for a bright future when the majority of teachers lack the qualifications to teach.
Want to help? Become a fundraiser or make a donation today.
To sweeten the deal, all fundraisers who hit the $500 goal will receive a sharp Summits Education embroidered Patagonia raincoat, and the top two individual fundraisers* for Teachers First will win a four day trip to Haiti with Summits Education founders Paul English and Mike Chambers.
At Summits, we invest in teachers to transform the world's most vulnerable communities. We recognize that educators are the most important factor in improving student outcomes, and that access to an education delivered by determined, compassionate, skillful teachers is one of the most fundamental ways to change the landscape of poverty.
Join us in raising $100,000 to fund innovative training programs and ongoing professional development for the teachers and administrators who run our network of primary schools. These opportunities will empower teachers to equip students with the skills they need to succeed and lead their communities.
If we hit this goal, our teacher training programs will be funded in full for an entire year. Can you imagine?
*The top fundraisers must raise a minimum of $1,000 to win the trip.
