“Teacher for Russia” program about the community of concerned people, who change Russian schools for the better every day. Participants in the program - graduates and experts from different areas - make a non-trivial choice: they move to Russian towns and villages to become teachers at local schools for two years. The objective of “Teachers for Russia” is aimed at ensuring that every child could become the author of his or her own life, regardless of where he or she was born or grew up. Thus, the program is intended to level the playing field for children seeking quality schooling, a decent future and the possibility to dream for real.
