Teach for Bulgaria

Created on the initiative and with the financial support of America for Bulgaria Foundation (ABF) in 2010, Teach for Bulgaria recruits, trains, places, and supports young professionals in their role as teachers of students in some of the most-needy communities in Bulgaria. Through improved teaching and support for underprivileged and underperforming students, the program aims to increase student achievement and motivation levels and to have a positive impact on its partner schools and their communities. TFB also develops a network of successful teachers, school communities and societal leaders committed to changing structural and systemic barriers in Bulgaria’s educational system to ensure that every child has access to quality education needed for professional and life success.  Since 2010, TFB has placed 373 teachers in 120 schools with more than 18,000 students in 11 districts of Bulgaria.
