Deutsche Post DHL Group (DPDHL) has extended its partnership with global not-for-profit organisation Teach For All in Asia Pacific, to Bangladesh and Malaysia, helping to boost educational opportunities and employability within the two countries.
The move brings the total number of country partnerships between DPDHL and Teach For All partners to 10, with a total of four in Asia Pacific.
Christof Ehrhart, executive vice president, corporate communications and responsibility, Deutsche Post DHL Group, said: “A strong economy and successful society has at its root an educational system that helps all citizens, whatever their background, get jobs and prosper. This is why DPDHL has for the past five years supported the global NGO, Teach For All and we now support them and their network partners in 10 countries Ì¶ Argentina, Bangladesh, Chile, Germany, India, Peru, Philippines, Ecuador, Spain and Malaysia. In Asia Pacific, we were delighted to kick off the partnership in Bangladesh and Malaysia this year, so the programme has the resources and support to reach out to even more young people through education and training.”
Under these new partnerships, DPDHL will employ its competence in logistics and business to support Teach For Bangladesh and Teach For Malaysia’s goals to promote educational opportunities and employability. Along with providing financial support, this partnership will also see DHL employees in Bangladesh and Malaysia volunteering to support teachers, who will in turn impact students in the countries.
