Teach With Africa Launches 2018 Thumbs Up for Education Year-End Campaign with Fall Celebration!


Our year-end campaign began with a successful Fall Celebration graciously hosted by Evin Gelleri, owner and general manager of Sessions at the Presidio in San Francisco.  Supported by our generous donors, guests enjoyed mingling and catching up with Nigel Richard, Director of the Global Teachers Institute and Maren Anderson, Chief Operating Officer of Teach With Africa. Nigel and Maren shared recent developments: this summer, combined US/South African teams plan to expand into rural Zambia to help train teachers of the youngest and most vulnerable children.

Our sponsors and silent auction donors provided the TWA Fall Celebration with a wonderful assortment of gifts that delighted our guests with a highlight auction item of a 3-night stay at the exclusive Chitwa Chitwa Safari Lodge. We are incredibly thankful to Matthew Brink who came from South Africa to personally introduce our bidders to the unique experience of Chitwa Chitwa, including the knowledge that every guest contributes to the Wisani Preschool in the adjacent village.

Thank you to our sponsors and silent auction donors!
