Cause

The BC TEAL Charitable Foundation (TCF) was established by the Association of BC Teachers of English as an Additional Language (BC TEAL). It is dedicated to promoting the teaching and learning of English as an additional language, and provides eleven awards and scholarships to learners and educators annually. Currently, we are raising funds to extend our scholarships for refugee high school students to attend post-secondary programs in BC. Many of our recipients have arrived in Canada from war-torn countries. Many have missed critical years of education while living in refugee camps. With few resources and little or no family to fall back on, they struggle to survive, and exist in a cycle of low- level employment. However, education allows them to break that cycle, and despite the obstacles of their past, these outstanding students have achieved high grades and served their new schools and communities through volunteering their time. The only thing they lack are the funds to access post-secondary education. This is where the TCF scholarships come in; they help these students change the course of their lives.

Why Buy? 

Due to COVID, the TCF have been unable to hold our fundraising activities to extend our scholarships for refugee students. It is more important than ever for us to continue to raise scholarship funds to assist these students. All proceeds raised from the TEAL Charitable Foundation 2021 Raffle for Refugees will go towards scholarships for refugee students to attend BC post-secondary programs. You will be helping to make a stronger, healthier, and more inclusive Canada.
