TEACHER FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
Begun in 2005 as a direct response to the loss of teachers in the wake of the 2004 tsunami, this program places educators in schools in areas of need. Sponsoring a teacher can provide your company with a direct and personal link to a local school.
Thank you to Philip Morris (Thailand), Hemaraj Land and Development and The Gallipeau Harris Foundation for donating to the AMCHAM Teacher Fellowship Program in 2010.
