We're on a mission to end education inequity in Malaysia.
What is education inequity?
A child’s origin often determines the quality of his or her education, and therefore the choices that become available to them later in life. Teach For Malaysia believes that this distinct relationship between socio-economic disadvantage and weak educational outcomes is a critical challenge for our nation.
