Partners in education:
By using a sponsor-a-child model, The Teacher’s Trust supports teachers, We provide them with the stability they need to build great students. The funds are used to provide ongoing monthly support of salaries, training, supplies and more. We provide grants to the schools so they can shift the tuition money they continue to receive to other needed projects in the school.
