  • 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.

New Askar Women’s Wall

Our outgoing teacher in New Askar refugee camp, Justine Lyons, spent part of her time teaching the 7/8 girls about influential women from around the world. The girls were given short bios and then got to make posters, the best of which ended up on New Askar’s very own Women’s Wall!
