As a tribute to the great contribution of teachers to society, Teach For Qatar has launched a ‘Thank Your Teacher’ social media campaign today to mark World Teacher’s Day.

The campaign, which will run throughout the month of October, features young people from various professions in Qatar sending a special message of appreciation to their teachers.

‘Thank Your Teacher’ was also launched as a platform upon which anyone seeking to acknowledge teachers who have positively impacted their lives can participate, using the hashtag #thank_your_teacher on Twitter and Instagram.

Promoting the value of the teaching profession is one of the fundamental objectives of Teach for Qatar, which seeks to harness all opportunities to acknowledge the crucial role teacher’s play in society.

Founded by Her Excellency Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al Thani, Teach For Qatar is a local non-governmental organisation (NGO) working as part of the solution to help solve some of the challenges Qatar’s students face. It does this by reinvesting exceptionally talented leaders into the independent school system through a two-year leadership development and teaching program.

World Teachers’ Day has been celebrated in more than 100 countries, including Qatar, since its establishment in 1994.
