The Teach For India team is running at the Mumbai Marathon with the aim of raising at least Rs 10,000 per runner towards our cause. Your support will help us achieve our vision that one day, all children will attain an excellent education.

India is facing an education crisis, with students in the system receiving a vastly inadequate education and over 7 million out of school children. Teach For India believes that in order for the country to achieve educational equity for all children, we need a movement of leaders across sectors who are committed to and will work toward ensuring that every child receives an excellent education.

To build this movement Teach For India recruits India's most outstanding college graduates and young professionals to teach full-time in municipal and low-income private schools schools for two years. These young leaders gain critical experience in the educational system to effect fundamental, long-term changes necessary to ultimately realize educational opportunity for all.

Teach For India is fielding a team to participate in the Mumbai Marathon, on 16 January 2011. Each participating runner will help energize this movement, bringing us closer to achieving our mission by raising funds and awareness for the cause. Your support will help us achieve or vision that one day, every child will attain an excellent education.
