On behalf of the founders, Advisory Board, Officers and Members, we welcome you to Tebah Educational Initiative (T.E.I), where “Excellence Demand Sacrifice” and “Learning is Achieving”
Who We Are
Tebah Educational Initiatives, Inc. (T.E.I) is a 501(c)(3) organization that promotes educational awareness for students by helping them understand the benefits of education and to strive for excellence. We believe that Education has an immense potential to change and save lives. Our organization encourages students to become exceptional in society by promoting individual growth by academic achievement.
Our education initiative was established to harness students’ skills and talents despite certain challenges such as peer pressure, bullying, teenage pregnancy, juvenile history, and self –esteem problems. Our goal is to put them on a path to leadership. Tebah Educational Initiative is not a school, rather it is an organization that uses creative methods to encourage disadvantaged students to excel by offering, mentorship, summer camps and afterschool activities.
Education transforms lives. John Dewey said, “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” and Dr. Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon that you can use to change the world.” We have learned to understand that if we educate ourselves, we will be in a better position to help build a better community. Let us help invest in the future of our generation. Education has been proven to yield a larger impact than any other form of help or aid we can give. Just learning to read and write could lift millions of people out of poverty.
Education represents the only way out of a life of entrenched poverty. Education is more than earning a job. It is playing an increasingly vital role in helping children protect themselves against the diseases that can ravage poor communities. Education builds confidence, cohesiveness, and community. Educated children are less likely to become victims of violence and abuse. They are more likely to invest in improving their community when they are grown. The follow-on effects of even basic education quickly multiply as children who have benefited from schooling themselves strive to secure even better opportunities for their own families. (UNICEF)
