The story behind TeachSurfing
The lack of cultural tolerance and access to knowledge are raising challenges in societies worldwide.
TeachSurfing founders Migan & Gretta are originally from Armenia & Romania. They both studied software
engineering and are living & working in Germany. When visiting back home, they wanted to share their
professional knowledge to inspire youth in their home countries. But there was a lack of a direct and flexible way to
contact with schools and NGOs who are interested to learn from their expertise. During One Young World
Migan & Gretta met many like-minded people from all around the world and were inspired to build a world-wide
network of passionate people who want to share knowledge and experiences. Today this solution is incorporated in The TeachSurfing Community
. With the growth of the community new challanges showed up, that made the team create the TeachSurfing Academy
and the TeachSurfing Software Solutions
