We Empower Teachers


The impact of a truly empowered teacher goes far beyond what can be measured with numbers. As role models and community leaders, they have the power to create change that lasts for generations. 1 Million Teachers is the international programming partner for the development of empowered teachers, we go beyond training to also create pathways to job satisfaction and consistent income in order to achieve sustainability.
