Preparing for the spring semester in Deir Al-Hatab.
  • Support Teach for Palestine!

  • What does TFP do?

    Each year TFP works with hundreds of refugees and at-risk Palestinian youngsters. We instruct our students in English, social responsibility, and physical fitness.
  • Why TFP?

    For Palestinian children, English language unlocks the door to higher education. It lets them take a role in rebuilding their suffocated economy. It gives them a chance to tell their stories to the outside world. TFP works with youth who would otherwise be denied that chance.
