TFL is an NGO working to ensure that all children in Lebanon, regardless of socioeconomic background, have access to a quality education.

As an organization, we staunchly believe that quality education is not just a simple human right but it is also a weapon to reinforce tolerance, critical thinking, and social cohesion, which leads to a more prosperous, democratic, and sustainable world. Thus, providing quality education, psychological support, and reintegration of vulnerable children is what we work relentlessly for.

The model of Teach For Lebanon is an education innovation that focuses on youth capacity building to provide quality intervention and systemic support for students. TFL employs and trains the nation’s top-notch graduates, “TFL Fellows”, and places them in schools serving underprivileged refugee and Lebanese children. The Fellows receive on-going training and support to address educational disadvantages by:

- Providing transformational teaching that places their students on a path of academic success

- Expanding their students’ horizons and visions to help them realize their full potential

- Working with the students, schools and local community to alter mindsets through example and advocacy

- Developing extracurricular activities, providing workshops, and community based projects for students families and community leaders

Fellows work in orphanages, semi-free schools and public schools, in formal and non-formal education, covering both the first and second shift program to ensure quality services to underprivileged children. Fellows also provide psycho-social support to their students through recreational activities and psycho-educative interventions in teaching. This serves as an effective solution that will help children overcome psychological struggles, and in turn unleash their full potential in their learning, cognition, and emotional regulation, hence, leading to better academic performances.
