Models for the future – a Teach for Romania Campaign

Our purple, bright way to celebrate this year’s World Teachers’ Day

On this year’s World Teachers’ Day, our Kite team had the opportunity to celebrate the incredible educators and leaders across our country. How? By joining Teach for Romania’s efforts to raise awareness about the importance of the educational role models in unlocking the children’s opportunity to fulfill their potential.

How? The brief for the deliverable assets was simple for our creative designers and brilliant developers: a website to increase the donation’s favorability. The behind-the-scenes’ story? So emotional. Dedicated teams from Teach for Romania, Lidl.ro, Ogilvy, Mediacom, our agency, together with Virgil Ianțu, Răzvan Exarhu, Aida Economu put together their creative resources, skills and expertise to fly high, like a kite, a message for a better education, for a brighter future for all.

 

Role Models for the future. Here’s how you can support them

Teach for Romania enlists Romania’s most promising leaders to teach in high-need areas for two years and, in the long-term, drive systemic changes from within and outside of the education sector. The organization partners with schools to help them thrive and provide a fair education, fulfilling potential in all children, not just some.

Teach for Romania’s talented members grow from teachers to exceptional leaders and role models for the next generation.

These teachers are the superheroes making a difference where it’s most needed. They have many responsibilities to juggle, from confronting educational inequity head-on to reimagine education to be embraced by all children. For them, “good enough” is just arriving at a closed-door; “better for all” is the key unlocking the so-needed potential. That’s why these teachers go the extra mile for their pupils, inspiring them to grow.

Their superhero cape is woven with courage, boldness, urgency and perseverance in pursuit of transformational impact. Their superpower is to give children wings to fly and reach their potential, guiding them through a fulfilling learning journey. Inside-out; in the classroom, to their community, in life.

They have a lot on their plate as impactful world changers, but they also have a supportive community to lean on. Be part of it. Donate. Join Teach for Romania’s efforts to work towards a fair education for all.
