Teacher AwardS

The mission of the teacher award program is to help volunteering teachers and non-government-appointed teachers, (民办教师, 代课教师或志愿教师) who are working under the hardest circumstances and are still dedicated to education.

The program was launched in the spring of 2011 after CTEF investigated a donor’s suggestion. We found that such types of teachers are crucial to education in rural China but their incomes are less than 50% of government-appointed teachers', which is often not enough to support their families. We believe that by helping these teachers financially to allow them to continue teaching in rural schools, we will help the students in rural China get a good education.
