A message to all members of Teachers Without Borders - Canada
Dear Teachers Without Borders – Canada Member
We are changing our name! Teachers Without Borders-Canada (TWB-Canada) will henceforward be known as Education Beyond
Our relationship with our former partner, Teachers Without Borders (TWB), to
date has been one of mutual autonomy and support, and will remain so. TWB
offered TWB-Canada the option to become a chapter within its organization.
After careful consideration of TWB’s new direction, the fact we would lose our
Canadian charitable license if we accepted, and with due regard for the value
of our own work to date, TWB-Canada has respectfully declined.
We feel it is important to stay true to our philosophy and grassroots approach
to inter-country support and development through education. We believe in the
value of teachers working with teachers in their classrooms. Our experiences
have proven that face-to-face solidarity is a very human response to our
colleagues’ struggling to enrich their instruction and we strongly believe that
this contact is essential. It is through the development of collegial
relationships that one can truly build trust and the resulting sharing of
information and cultural experiences benefits all stakeholders. This experience
builds capacity and understanding leading to an enriched educational experience
for our students both in the host country and here at home when team members

if you have any questions. In the meantime, Education Beyond Borders will
continue its evolution as a hands-on, equal supporter of teachers and other
educators in classrooms abroad and here at home. We look forward to your
continued support as we sustain our very successful and empowering educational
programmes because, together, we are making a difference.
Founder & President,
Education Beyond Borders
