Our Teaching Program

Both public and private schools in South Africa desperately need good teachers.

Raise the Children sends volunteer teachers to each of our two of our partner schools for 1 or more years, serving in many different capacities. 

In return, the schools give 3 -5 scholarships to Raise the Children for each teacher provided.
These scholarships allow the orphans in our program to attend private school for free.

"RTC for me, began as a way to return to a place I felt I wanted to know. It then became an organization that connected me to scholars & teachers who turned into family.

To this day, I am still in contact with the four scholars that came with me to the school I was placed at. I know they will be scholars I keep in touch with, wherever life leads them...I will cherish that forever."

- Hannah Filipiak
