Charity of the week

WorldTeach

WorldTeach (worldteach.org) was founded in 1986 by a group of Harvard students who wanted to help provide better schooling in developing countries. Since then, the organization has placed more than 7,000 volunteer educators in mostly rural communities throughout Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the Pacific Islands. WorldTeach assigns volunteers to schools that specifically request its services and otherwise would be unable to find or afford qualified teachers for English and other subjects. Bachelor’s degree holders of any nationality can apply to undergo the selective recruitment process for the organization’s more than two dozen national programs. Volunteers receive teacher training, language preparation, and field support that empower them to effect lasting change.

Each charity we feature has earned a four-star overall rating from Charity Navigator, which rates not-for-profit organizations on the strength of their finances, their control of administrative and fundraising expenses, and the transparency of their operations. Four stars is the group’s highest rating.
