COVID-19 Update

Teach for Nigeria (TFN) is committed to ending educational inequity in Nigeria. In the midst of the pandemic, we are committed to continuing to enroll leaders who will drive the movement towards educational equity and excellence in Nigeria. To learn more about how you can be part of this movement, continue to read below.

How are we responding to COVID-19?

The COVID-19 pandemic has unfortunately caused widespread disruption and uncertainty not only in Nigeria but around the world. The safety of our community remains our highest priority and as such, we are prioritizing the following:
1. Protecting students and ensuring their continuity of learning
2. Safety of fellows, staff, and applicants

Now more than ever, we are concerned about the students who attend our public schools. Their communities are facing additional and increasing disadvantages that will prevent them from accessing quality education, thereby widening the existing educational gap between children from the lowest and highest socioeconomic households. This is especially because school can often be a place not just for learning but an engine for social mobility and a safe place from home, with access to food and water. As a result, many students who are out of school are at risk of health and nutritional challenges as well as compromised wellbeing in these times of isolation.

This is why Teach For Nigeria is committed to continuing its work and continues to need not only the next generation of inspiring leaders but existing teachers with exemplary leadership qualities within communities, to help us accelerate positive impact in education and stability for the communities and students we serve.

The Recruitment, Selection, and Matriculation unit would be hosting information sessions designed to provide more information about the application process and the Fellowship program. Please follow our social media pages for more information.
