We believe that each child can and should receive excellent education. To get there we need leaders in all sectors involved in overcoming the education inequality in this country. Our theory of change consists of two parts:
 

OUR SHORT-TERM THEORY OF CHANGE:

includes the Teach For Bulgaria program. It is an instrument for selection and training of capable and outstanding university students approaching graduation and professionals from various fields to work full-time as highly effective teachers of students who need help and support the most. Our teachers work tirelessly to mend the vast gaps their students struggle with, at the same time helping them master the academic and everyday skills required for success. In the line of their work, teachers develop leadership skills and come to intimately know the challenges the Bulgarian education system faces.

The vision of Teach For Bulgaria is that one day every child in Bulgaria will have access to quality education, regardless of the school he/she goes to, the town or village he/she resides in or if his/her parents have any financial means or not.

As part of the Teach For All international network, Teach For Bulgaria works in partnership with more than 40 organizations on 6 continents to expand the education opportunities for all students around the world. Teach for Bulgaria was initiated and financially supported by the America for Bulgaria Foundation.
 

OUR LONG-TERM THEORY OF CHANGE

involves Teach For Bulgaria alumni and all trainees successfully finishing the two-year leadership development program. Upon completion of the program they continue their development as active advocates of educational systemic change through direct work in or outside school. Over 70% of our 164 alumni to date continue to develop in schools and in the education sector, while the rest are in the business and entrepreneurship sector. Teach for Bulgaria supports alumni to engage in communities of practice in one of the following: policies, leadership in teaching, social entrepreneurship and community change.
