QATAR Petroleum International Ltd (QPI) has partnered with Teach For All to strengthen its global network of independent social enterprises that address educational inequality.
As part of the partnership, QPI has awarded Teach For All a grant of $500,000. This support from QPI will enable Teach For All to expand educational opportunities around the world. QPI’s grant will also contribute to the efforts of Teach For All’s network partners in Asia, and its centres in China, India, Japan, the Philippines, and Thailand.
“We are pleased to be partnering with Teach For All, a reputed organisation striving for equity and excellence in global education,” said QPI CEO Nasser al Jaidah.
“As part of QPI’s corporate social responsibility, we are committed to improving international communities. QPI is contributing both financial support and employee volunteering for Teach For All. This partnership will help build a brighter future by expanding knowledge, developing leaders and driving progress in many countries around the world.”
“We’re thrilled that Qatar Petroleum International is committed to investing in expanding educational opportunity,” said Wendy Kopp, CEO and Co-founder of Teach For All.
She added,”This new partnership will help us continue to build strong support and resources for our entire network and QPI’s direct support of our network partners across Asia will impact their work on a classroom level.”
Teach For All is a global network of organisations that recruit outstanding students and professionals from all academic backgrounds to commit two years to teach in high-need schools and then become life-long leaders to expand educational opportunity.
Teach For All’s network comprises 34 national partner organisations in the Middle East, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas.
Teach For All and network partners will work closely with QPI to coordinate a week of tailored employee engagement activities, which will include a site visit and an opportunity to share career advice and life experience with students in under-privileged schools.
